New Bike

There are a bunch of guys in our ward who are very into biking. They have nice road bikes and sometimes go out on rides together. One guy in the ward rides his bike everywhere. He even rode it to ward council last week. That may not seem like that big of a deal, but it takes us 20-25 minutes to drive to our church. It was really funny watching him come in in his sweats and t-shirt, go to the bathroom, and then come out in his suit.

Anyway...since we moved to Kentucky, Noel has loved riding his old Huffy mountain bike around for some exercise. Although the Huffy is pretty much the best bike ever made, he has really wanted to get a road bike so that he could go out with his friends in the ward. So today all of his wildest dreams came true. He got his road bike. It is a Cannondale Sport. It has the nice gear shifters, drop down handle-bars, carbon-fiber fork and the whole bit. We got a really good deal on it, too. It is so snazzy!Now all he needs is the spandex. :)

Oooh fun! Adam and I bought some Gary Fishers when we first got married and LOVED to ride them around Lexington.(although they were more mountain bikes than road bikes) We haven't gone out much since we had Joselyn but one day we want to get one of those trailer things and get riding again! Bikes are great and we even found out that Lexington is doing a lot to try and make it a more bike friendly city. So fun!

I think I will pass on seeing the spandex picture! That's awesome that he's into biking! Josh is going on his first ride WITH people tomorrow. He got invited to go riding with some guys from Rock's Cycling when he was riding home from work today. Crazy! I don't think I could ever ride a bike that skinny!
