New non-quilting toy

I bought myself a bike!
The photo is not the exact model, but very close...Schwinn 26 inch women's Jaguar in blue. I've been wanting a bike for a long time now, and with the gas prices at 3.40 a gallon, I thought it was time to make the purchase. I use to ride a bike all over when I lived at the beach. I use to ride a bike all over the small town of Nephi, Utah when I was first married. I use to teach piano lessons and it was easier to ride a bike house to house then take the truck.
Then, I got hit! I was riding along a dirt road and got creamed by a truck....the bike actually faired better then me. I had an emergency room visit and a concussion and major road rash! I never really rode a bike after that......about 25 years.
Until now....I even practised in Target to make sure I could do it without falling!
Save gas, lose weight and ride your bike!

No...and I just realized that too! 25 years ago, helmets were a big issue!
