Kicking it out on road bike!

Went yesterday on 4.8 mile bike ride with 175 feet elevation, Totally loving the new modifications Mr. Hill-Pumper made to the road bike, fits like a glove! Was able to evenly stand for the first while coasting! Yeah ME! Now make sure you all tell my hubby this year for our 12th Anniversary he needs to buy me my very own bike gloves and a real nice pair of glasses, cause he just bought himself another new bike!!!!!

"Huh....I think I'll buy my wife a Kit-Kat so I can justify a Porsche."

Congrats on the accomplishment, Mrs. Hill-Pumper!

OK, I should at least defend myself a little here. First, Mrs. Pumper has been asked if she wants a new bike. Her answer is no, she is liking the road bike that I am fixing up for her for now. We will see how she likes riding it and what she likes and dislikes about it. Then if she keeps riding and wants a new bike, we will get one for her. No need to spend the money on something she doesn't ride. Second, about my new bike. I came across my dream bike for a price that was incredibly cheap . It should be my lifetime road bike, and Mrs. Pumper actually gave me her blessing to get it. I am using some money that I had tucked away for restoring a classic vehicle that we have. I am going to sell the vehicle since it does not fit in our lifestyle anymore, and the bike will see more use then the vehicle ever did. Finally, I plan on getting Mrs. Pumper more then a pair of gloves and bike glasses for our anniversary. I am lucky to have her, and I am proud of the effort she is making!!

Stop sucking up hill pumper. You owe her big. Lets face it, you are sorta in the dog house here. She is waiting in the darkness, wondering what she will get since she let you get the bike. We all will be waiting........................
