Follow Us On Twitter

Surprisingly, it is easier than dropping leaflets from the Seaplanes. You can now follow us on Twitter @StylenCycleMom.

Thanks to Tom at Seattle Bike Blog for the suggestion.

Bike Ride for Two Weeks!

I just found this blog entry that I started but I never finished and never published.  Even though it is a little late, I am going to finish it and post it.  

I was off the bike ride for two weeks and really felt the effects. Remember the post:

I Got on the Slippery Slope: No Bike Ride for TWO WEEKS

Getting started again was hard.  I had bad luck, I was lackadaisical in my planning, that turned out poorly and I had bad helmet hair. But I did get going. The best part is that I kept going.  There is not much to write about and that is also good.

My helmet hair got under control so I felt better about my bike-to-work appearance.  I even got a compliment on my ability to bike and still look chic. I figured out a new route to the new school that works well and I also minimized uphill climbs as much as possible.  (Still not a fan of uphill.) I rode my bike to work for two weeks, no car, no rides, only the bike. TWO WEEKS!  I am a little proud of that.

Retired Soon: My Son's Handlebar Seat

Riding in the fountain at South Lake Union Park

I love my current bike setup but as my son transitions from toddler to preschool, so must my bike configuration.  My favorite thing about having my son on my handlebars is that I can talk with him and see him.  I know myself well enough to know that I do need this exercise but what really keeps me on my bike is that it can be so much fun!  I hope the next setup is as fun for both of us as this ibert has been.
