Meet Suzi


I went to Bayview Cycle today and rescued Suzi. She was about to be crowded with all the big bad 2009 bikes. Suzi was so pretty that I just had to take her home. She is a Trek 7.2FX WSD. I took her for a test ride and she was the perfect match! The price was pretty good too, so I finally got over my bike hesitation and went for it.

On the drive home, I was thinking about the pretty blue colour and decided to name her "Suzushii kaze," which means cool breeze in Japanese. So, it's Suzi for short :)

I did a brick workout today...10k on Suzi followed by a 2k run. My ride was slow, as I was trying to get acquainted with Suzi and I haven't owned a bike since I was...hmm, about 10 years old? So, the 10k ride took me about 33 min. It was quite comfortable though...no sore butt :)

I'm glad that I am not restricted to the stationary bike anymore! It was getting pretty boring!

Oh very nice! Suzi is so cute! Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside reminiscing about the old days when I used to bike around everywhere. Enjoy your new ride!

Sweet ride.

I hope you got a nice helmet to match the bike :)

Yes, I bought a helmet long before I bought the bike...haha. I saw a bunch at Costco that looked decent, so I picked one up. But do let me know if you have helmet advice :)
