I want to ride my bicycle…

bike 3

Nicholas has always been really into biking. A few years ago before we were married, he surprised me with this awesome pink Schwinn. Then a few years later while on our honeymoon in Cape Cod, we purchased this even more awesome basket to go on the front of my bike.

This summer, we really put my bike and basket to use! We are fortunate enough to live close to Elmwood Avenue and their awesome farmer’s market that they have on Saturday mornings. This past weekend we biked 10.5 miles to and from the market…THIS IS SERIOUS. I BIKED 10.5 MILES WITHOUT DYING. For Nicholas it was a cake walk since he bikes anywhere from 15-30 miles a day, but I should have been awarded a medal after I got home.

What’s funny is that I love the color pink, but I hardly wear it. On this specific occasion, I had my pink bike, pink helmet, pink fleece, pink water bottle, and even a pink reusable bag inside my basket. It was a sight to see all right!

Now, quick question for those of you who like to bike longer distances. I wore these cheap Old Navy leggings, but I am looking for something with more coverage/better fabric. Maybe something with spandex. Can any of you recommend a specific brand or pair?

  1. What a fabulous bike! I would be on it every single day! I don’t have a bike right now but really any sports store will have a whole range of products to choose from. You can’t go wrong there. xo

  2. I have a pair of these I like to wear when I ride: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DYUV8VS/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=2IK8DXCC7ODA3&coliid=I1UQ193LJR3HTT

    I have a pair of spandex bike shorts with the padded butt, but I honestly wore them once for a 15 mile ride and decided I was way more comfortable in just regular capri sweatpants from Target. For me, I’d rather have something loose through the hips and thighs and just have them be shorter so as to not get caught up in the pedals. It might just be my personal preference though. I do ride my bike to work and church in skirts with spanx shorts quite often too. If the skirt is too full, I use a binder clip to keep it from hitting my back tire and/or flipping up in the front.
