I finally purchased the orange Electra Townie bicycle that I've been dreaming about.
I took it for a ride on the Adena Recreational Trail yesterday. Todd and I rode on a new-to-us portion of the trail. The bike is very comfortable and much lighter than my old bike. I was able to go faster without realizing it. Todd had to work to keep up with me.
We went on a very hilly portion of the trail that was quite a work-out. Then we had to cross a busy street only to find out that the next portion of the trail was in the blazing sun, so we decided to turn back. It was downhill for most of the way back; downhill is my favorite part. I'd like to find a trail that is downhill both ways.
