Let's ride!

If you remember my last post i shared a picture of my new bike.
Well last week I got to try it out
We set out to celebrate the 4th of July on the Virginia Creeper Trail

A 17 mile bike ride that is so beautiful ...and FUN!

...but all of a sudden I heard a strange sound coming from my NEW bike
So we had to stop for some repairs...

Dale worked on it for a while ....
we got back on and rode some more
...again a VERY unusual sound happened every time I peddled...
So when we pulled over this time
Dale discovered that the bike had not been assembled very well -
the part that connects the chain and tire, had worked loose from the bike.
I had rode 8 miles or so and we had another 8 or 9 miles to go.

So thankfully we were close to the cafe
(only one on the trail) and they were getting ready to close for the day
I walked my NEW bike there-and waited....
All by myself.. No phones..no people....nothing

Dale put his bike in turbo speed and down the mountain
saying he FLEW is an understatement
 It took him a total of 45min.
(8/9 miles on the trail ...get the truck
...ride 7-10 minutes up the mountain to rescue me!)
Needless to say I was amazed on how fast he did it all
( I think he was scared of someone snatchin' me)

As soon as we got home he returned my NEW bike got a refund-
the next day he went to a Bike Specialty shop and got me this...

It is soooo nice!
Comfort, smooth, easy..I think I could ride "cross country"
He went all out ....and I love it.
... I have put 9 miles it so far
now we are getting one for him that matches mine
Sweet. :D
