Got my bike today!

Hello,
I started my diet and daily walking program on March 1st. Put this bike on Layaway. Got it paid off today rather than one week later. Will have to wait till then to buy accessories. Today was also my weekly weigh in day. 2.2 pounds. Next tuesday should be a lot more now that i will be riding every day.

I know riding will be better for me than walking since i was huffing and puffing lol. Rode 3 miles home from the LBS, went past home and rode 4 miles more. My legs and arms feel it for sure. Hope i did the pictures right.

Thanks everybody!

Pictures are great except no garage door in the background. I rode today in 35 degree rain so I'm envious of your location.

Enjoy the new bike.

I'm having a little motivation difficulty these days so I've started riding my bike on all my errands... post office, grocery store... It isn't as good as the daily 17 mile rides I was doing last summer, but it feels good for now and I'm looking forward to when I can wear shorts and a T Shirt again.
