my new old bike!

blue bike, as you know, went back to her original owner so i needed another bike

but bikes are very personal objects, and not just any one will do

it’s taken awhile, but when i finally met this metallic olive-green fellow with the handsome seat a few weeks ago, i knew we’d be a good fit

at first we were an awkward pair… very tippy with the higher centre of gravity, and I boxed myself on the bar once (my god!) when I slipped off a wet pedal

but now that we have gotten to know each other, oh my,  it’s love!
