As I mentioned before, I bike in Seattle a lot and have awesome friends and family in so many places. For my birthday, back in February, they all gave me money for a new bike. Aren’t they cool.
In my life, a bike is more than a fun thing, but really is my preferred mode of transportation. I’ve been a bike commuter for years and even biked (camera, tripod and gear in tow) to Joe and Maria’s engagement session last summer. There is a truly amazing feeling to be on 2 wheels. You feel the weather. It isn’t something that you can hide from, but you become a part of the day. On the windy and wet ones in January and February, that’s not exactly the greatest feeling, but when you’re coming home on an July afternoon or even a night ride after a M’s game, it’s truly special.
I have to take time to thank my previous 2 wheeled friend. Below is my post from Instragam on our last day together.
So, now I set off on a new adventure with a new steed (59cm Kona Jake, just in case you were wondering). I just needed to take the time to explicitly thank my great friends and family. Also, if you’re up for a ride, I probably am too!
