New Love

No, this isn't another sappy post about Mr. Kilt (although I could write at least another 20).

Today when I got home from Mannheim, I headed over to the bike shop to pick up my new bike. After all the cycling tours last summer on my trusty Dutch bike, I decided I really wanted something that could handle trails and the hills in the countryside better. Last weekend, I headed over to the Trek store in Munich, told the boys what I was looking for and took a few test runs.

I quickly fell in love with a mountain bike and after the agreement on a discount and free switch of the tires, I had bought my second bike.



Mr. Kilt met me at the bike shop for the pick up and we had it fitted with lights and bought a lock and then I rode around the parking lot for half an hour to, erm, make sure everything was working okay. Alright, I actually just wanted to play. Hee hee.

If the weather holds up, the first Sunday cycling tour is planned for this weekend with about 15 people signed up. Only a big loop around Munich but I am looking forward to giving the bike (and my legs) a longer work out and catching up with the cycling gang after the long winter.

I also have some company this weekend. An American friend of mine who lives in Brussels is flying in tomorrow and spending Saturday and Sunday with me. I have a fun weekend planned for her but mostly looking forward to catching up and girl time.

I know the feeling :) I was just as excited when I bought mine last summer. I still love it and ride to work when ever the weather permits. Have a great "girls' weekend"!

oooooooo, I want one!

I've been meaning to replace my old bike (20 years) for a while now, but it's not gonna happen this year due to my USA trip.
