on Craigslist yesterday and bought it. Old Specialized Globe that needs new tires. In the bike shop today getting new tires and a baby seat attached. Really looking forward to riding!
Next task is to get hubby’s bike in the shop for a tune up. 2 weeks ago
The irony about this is, that I have a bike, but it is just about 500km from where I am in the garage of my parents. As I am not at all fit enough to ride it across Germany I have to think about a way to get it here because I don’t want to buy a new one… 2 months ago
I have a bike now!! :) I’m really, really happy now – I went cycling this evening and it was fantastic – such a lovely day, and it was so nice having the wind rush past as I went along! It feels really liberating, cycling around the countryside :) I can’t wait to check out more cycle routes! 6 years ago
I think I will have a bike by the end of this week :) I’m going to try a couple of shops I’ve thought of that are open in the evening and hopefully this should be sorted by Sunday! :) 6 years ago
I very nearly got a bike today, but was disappointed when the only place I could find one was a shop in the city centre which was too small to have them made up ready to take away. I work during the week and it being bank holiday today, I was hoping to be able to take one away today, but no :( I don’t know what I’m going to do now – I could get it home delivered, I guess… I was really looking forward to being able to go cycling this evening with my boyfriend as it’s a nice day today, but I guess I shouldn’t have got my hopes up so much :( 6 years ago
I have now found out where I can go cycling when I do get a bike. There’s a dene near me that you can cycle in as well as going for walks, so that’s really handy. I don’t know when I’ll be able to get a bike, but I think that it’s worth saving up for sooner rather than later, before I spend all my spare pennies on things I want but don’t really need… 6 years ago
I used to love cycling but during the last years at school, I didn’t use my bike and my parents got rid of it eventually while I was at uni. During university, I did get a bike but my fitness was so poor that I struggled with it, and without having anywhere to cycle other than the roads, I didn’t use it much either.
I don’t like cycling on the roads, but it’s much easier to find somewhere to cycle off roads where I live now, and with my goals to get fitter and healthier, I have renewed motivation to rediscover the joys of cycling :) I hope to get one after I’ve earned some money – I’ve only just started in my new job, so I’ll have to wait a little while! 6 years ago
I got a bike for christmas and I love it so! best gift ever!!! 15 months ago
winter is coming (actually, it’s here) so it’s practically pointless to get a bicycle right now. I think I’ll go shopping for one in March. so goal is on hold, but I intend to come back to it. I miss cycling! 17 months ago
after 4 months and 2000+ miles on my USED, $200 bike, it simply was not worth paying the tons of fees to bring it back home.
So I have been sans-bike for 2 months. And god, I miss it. I thought I’d never want to cycle again, but I’m actually physically craving a long ride right now. 18 months ago
I had been riding a 125cc for a few months, but it wasn’t till i got a 600cc Honda CBF when i considered this complete, although unfortunately that was actually stolen after only a week…
My next bike fared better and I even went on tour with some friends although i then crashed the bike….
My advice, be careful, take your time to become a really good rider. It’s a great feeling, thrilling, exhilarating, but it’s easy to get over confident and thats when it becomes dangerous. 18 months ago
