Mothers Day 2011..the day I got Sandra Dee.
This blog is still so very new, I only started it early June! So reading all the blogs on my roll(and then some), I notice that writers like to sum up their year with one last post before the clock strikes midnight. Since I’ve only had 6 months worth of blogging(or at least trying too), I thought that I wouldn’t be able to write much….upon lookin9g at ALLL my pictures, an backtracking some posts, I’ve had quite a busy biking year!
So I joined the rest out there in the blogosphere and decided to recap the joyous(and maybe not so much) months with my Sandra Dee!
Only one post back in June, and it was an introduction to my reason for starting this blog as well as topics I wanted to cover. I was brand new to blogging..and biking! There was SO much out there I wanted to learn, and not enough hours in the day to learn it all!..o yeah and I had blue hair :)
and some great riding partners <3
I was in a pretty gnarly accident
skin clean off!
It was him who gave me the balls later that day to say; “Lets cross the bridge and ride Manhattan!” Thanks Daddy <3
This month was a big and busy one! We had a mini-vacay to
Connecticut and our bikes came with I met the coolest people on the bike trail who took my pic!
Drew and Sue..you guys made my whole vacation!
Summer Streets was SO much fun! I’m looking forward to car-free Manhattan streets next year! This year we only did 2 out of 3 Saturdays, next year its all three :) I met some of the other LadyBikers(and blogger fame-dom) of NYC those Saturdays as well!
Riding and meeting Sheryl was like meeting a celeb! Keeping up with her was like something off my bucket list!
Regg and I even got shot by famed #BIKENYC photog Dmitry @ his Summer Streets booth!
The Kid took off his training wheels this hot and sweaty month too-
This is the smile of a very proud two-wheeler :)
We even scored an invite to a Hindi wedding!
We started off September with a Birthday bike date to Riverside via the West side Greenway
This is pretty much the view for the entire ride…amazing
I got my mom to get back on a bike!..and got some pink in my hair!
Not only was that one for the record books, My outfit the day before is still one of my fav bike outfits to date!
I was such a golden goddess..I miss sunbathing!
I had the best luck too this month…I won/was given SO much bike-related goodies!
was a freakin’ HECTIC month! Started with a bang when I completed my first bike tour
Amy the Awesome mom was just one of the many riders I met that day!
My darling Husband and I made one year married this month!
He’s the coffee to my crème…
I love you so much Hubba!
We also did our trick-or-treating by bike
During this half-year by bike I:
- got in a crash
- went through 3 bells and 2 mirrors
- had one tune-up and no flats
- completed my first bike tour
- crossed 3 bridges and 4 boroughs
- became a spectacle in my neighborhood, and in turn inspired some other chicks to get on their wheels
- met other awesome biking/blogging people, and learned about the cycling community of NYC
- discovered the joy and freedom of a bike again
- learned to love the awesomeness of a fat-bottomed girl on a bike…and
- STARTED THIS BLOG!
Speeding up to the present month, December one of my best blogging months, I’ve gained a few new followers and readers! I can only work at growing as a writer, cyclist, and woman in this upcoming year. There is no end to learning, and I hope to learn all I can in 2012!
Last BOOTD(bike outfit of the day) or 2011!
Thank you all for reading and I hope I continue to deliver some entertainment with a side of attitude in this new year! HAPPIEST OF NEW YEARS TO YOU ALL!
