yeah. icons make me laugh.

I did something completely out of the ordinary today. I chose to embrace today as a gift and not complain about how it was only one day of beautiful. It was a great tease and I was happy to have it. There is something pretty sweet about short sleeves outside in February.
My awesome mom agreed to watch the kids for a bit. So John and I headed out to the bike path and rode through the trees. The moon was full, the air was perfect and there was barely any ice. I felt so out of shape, but didn't even care. I didn't even care that the saddle was a painful wedge.

i find ANY saddle hurts after a long time off the bike.

No, this saddle really really has to go. It is literally a wedge. It's not a "oh my sit bones are sore" type thing. It's a "get that thing out of my crotch" type of saddle.

Tom K said...

don't you guys have like 50 bikes? can't you steal on off another bike?

spicyride said...

you can't steal parts off other bikes. i do have extra saddles. but i absolutely was not expecting to be going for a ride outside in feb. still tho, it's on the agenda for this evening.

Doesn't it make you all giddy and happy and nothing in the world can wipe the perma-smile off your face?

(not the saddle, the ride)

God, i love that feeling.
