I bought a ladies vintage bike!

mint_6_special

I bought this gorgeous mint bike from the Reid Cycles today! (Well, technically the baskets were sold out so I’m picking that up in Feb lol) I’m loving the comfortable bike seat and handles, and of course, the overall look of it. All I need is a summer dress, a straw hat, a few novels in my bike basket, and I’m set!

Irfan and I have been checking out different bike stores before I decided on my mint one. Aside from it being love at first sight, Reid Cycles has great customer service. In the other stores that we visited, none of the salespeople approached either of us. FAIL. The prices were pretty steep too, for that kind of non-existent customer service. In contrast, once I stepped into the store, the friendly salesperson came up to me to ask what kind of bike I was looking for. He made the interesting point that since I only intend to ride on smooth cycle paths and roads, there’s no need for me to have suspension. The 6-speed gears would really help me though.

I highly recommend Reid Cycles for anyone looking to buy a bike that suits you. You’ll get an awesome selection of bikes, fantastic service, and a great package of accessories when you do get a bike. Plus – 12 months of free bike servicing! How awesome is that?

Our New Year’s Day plan is to cycling in the morning around our green, leafy neighbourhood. Irfan is a more experienced cyclist, and I’m keen on following him around so I can learn where the cycle paths are in my neighbourhood, and beyond. I’m really looking forward to building up my riding stamina so I can cycle for longer distances. My goal is to build up my stamina to a point where I can cycle to Balmoral beach, then go for a swim to cool off!

Here’s to 2013 – a year of more exercise and greater well-being! What are some of your goals?
