Name my Baby
Well, ok. I have thus happily purchased my new urbanite vehicle, the Trek ’08 2.1 WSD. In my quest to go car-less in Pasadena, I’m still riding in style.
I went for the next model up, on account of good sales (it’s last year’s model) and all around bang for the buck. I also got 2 U-locks to protect the child. (Thanks, Lisa.)
Me: “So are there especially ‘hot spots’ in the city where I shouldn’t park the bike?”
Pasadena Cyclery Dude: “Um…the whole city?”
He assured me that the 2 U-locks seem to be working for cycling hipsters in NYC, though. If it works in NYC, it should work in Pasadena.
I went for a nice ride yesterday in my new spandex shorts. (Work it. Own it. Love it.) Did you know cycling shorts are replete with padding the shape of a bike seat in the crotch? Peculiar.
Now my vehicle just needs a good name. I think it looks like a cream-cicle, but I’m not sure that works. All suggestions welcome.
