Suddenly I found myself in need of a bicycle. I rushed to Craigslist and found Minty, a beautiful mint green beach cruiser. I rushed out to buy her after work one day and accessorized her to make her mine. She's a really pretty girl isn't she?
Here's where the story goes a bit off course. I had been told that I would need a bike with gears. Pshaw I said, I will only ride at the beach. No hills for me. WRONG! I found myself wanting to go to the park with the kids. And that required riding up a hill.
The first time I tried riding up a hill, I thought I was going to die. Of course I blamed Minty and not my lack of physical fitness. I want to ride up hills! So now, what to do?
