Sarah (a blogger I now follow) has given me the cycling bug. This is one bug I hope to keep. I LOVED biking when I was a teen and I pray it comes back. My sister had this bike and she wasn't using it anymore, so I adopted it. I named her Aislyn, which is Irish for Dream, Vision. Yes, I do have an issue with naming inanimate objects. My band is Desiree and my camera is Nikki.
Anyhow, Aislyn is in the shop getting some new street worthy shoes. I have talked to several cyclist and they all say that it will be much easier to ride the roads with smooth tires. As time goes on and I see if I am committed to this, then I will look at getting a new road bike.
I discovered there is a ride in my town this coming Sept, to raise money for MS research, so I am shooting to be ready for that. I will decide by the end of the month, but I am pretty sure I am gonna go for it.
Can't wait to try her out this weekend. Wish me luck (and a somewhat painless rear!)
