So after living in a very bike-friendly neighborhood for almost a year, I have finally purchased a new bicycle. I haven’t had a bike since college. And haven’t really ridden in many years. Yes, I remembered how to ride a bike but wow was I wobbly and shaky for those first few rides. I am slowly getting back into shape and training my muscles on how to ride. Thankfully, I live in Capitol Heights so there is a convenient bike lane. However, it’s going to take some time before I am ready to venture outside my neighborhood.
I have been mulling over this for some time but finally decided to go into Mid City Bikes last week to see their selection of refurbished bikes. I knew I wanted a nice one but didn’t want to spend too much. The staff there are very knowledgeable and after hearing what I wanted the bike for helped me to pick out one in my price range. Several friends had recommended this shop to me and I’m happy with the experience. I hope to be cruising around BR all the time (at least as the heat allows!)
