Taking My Cruiser, "Rusty" For A Spin In Illinois
Today was one of those days.
Bloomington Women's cycling club for their evening ride. I warned Adrianne that I only had a cruiser, flip flops, no helmet, no fancy bicycle clothes and only one speed for the ride. She assured me that this was a "fun ride" for all levels.
When I arrived at the shop, I met the ladies and some looked at me and said, "awww, you're not going to join us this evening?" (as I wore flip flops and walking shorts). When I pointed to my cruiser they looked at it and paused to think of the correct words instead of the, "are you kidding me" that most likely went through their head. I even joked that I found it on the corner with a "Free" sign attached to it and one woman nodded her head and said, "oh, that makes sense. "
Bloomington Bicycle shop. I am so glad I was able to join these wonderful ladies on their weekly ride. If you live in the area, ride a bike (anything you have will do) and are a woman, this is a great social group to join!
