You guys, I am just beyond excited about my recent pregnancy gift to myself: a beautiful, cream-colored, Dutch-style bike!
I ordered it through Critical Cycles based on a recommendation from a friend, and the model I chose is the Dutch-Style 7-Speed City Bike. Though I was tempted to go with the 1-speed, Brian reminded me that we have hills in our neighborhood and that I’d really regret not having gears. After my inaugural ride on Monday, I can attest to the fact that he was 100% correct. Thank you, Brian.
While I just got it and am yet to really explore town on it, I’m already in love. I feel so European on it, and I love the fact that I get to sit up straight while riding it, unlike previous, more athletically-geared bikes I’ve had in the past. Since my doctor has me on a break from running for another month or so, I’m hoping this bike will help me get out there and getting fresh air each day, giving me the exercise my body needs, especially while incubating this little human being.
Do you have a bike? What type is it and what kind of biking do you like to do (cruising, mountain biking, cycling…)?
P.S. I’m not affiliated with Critical Cycles at all—just a happy new owner!
