more bike



finally i have become one of those with a bike (been envying you bike folks forever), & its been at least a decade since i even owned a bike, its about time considering i don't have a drivers license & hugely support public transportation. my friend tracie (a complete bike nerd, that is a huge compliment by the way) scoured for jsut the right  bike she knew i would love & even re-built the tire (so sweet). as you can see, i still haven't ventured past quiet neighborhoods, still need a helmet & a bell to brave that, i'm pretty scared to death of moving cars, should be interesting. oh & i cut off my mop, really needed a change,i may tweak the length shorter & waiting for the inevitable hair fade, heres the photo that really inspired the cut. also, had no idea i had such big hair, so i need to figure how to tame it still.

  7. Sexy 'do! Really suits you!
    A good helmet company is Bern. Originally a snowboard helmet company, they branched out into bike helmets after people started wearing them for riding and cycling. My friend was wearing one when she was in a major bike accident. It totally saved her life.

  9. Wow, gorgeous hair & colour!!! The short hair & bangs combination really look stellar on you!!! Perfect for fall :)

    Also love your bike! I don't drive either and wish I had one, but the idea of having to ride next to cars freaks me out! haha

  10. What a lovely bike! Glad to hear you've taken the plunge. And there's no shame in sticking to quieter streets until you build up confidence.

  12. Damn, you make suburbia look so good. I need to get out and take some photos of the autumn suburbs.
    (Also, this looks suspiciously like Brampton...)
