I got a new ride! 1

Last night I finally got a new to me bike!

The week before I had went to the bike shop and looked at the Specialized Women’s Jett.    It’s a nice ride.  They were going to get a smaller one in for me to check out but in the meantime I found out about my friend selling her bike.

It’s a Specialized Myka.  It’s a couple years old but she only rode it a handful of times, and the tires are upgraded.  If I went with the new bike, I would have gotten a 29er (bigger wheels) and better suspension.  But this is a good solution for me for now.  It’s definitely an upgrade from what I have now and gives me the opportunity to test the waters in more trail riding for tri’s and adventure racing.     I can always upgrade to the new one next year or so if I want to.

I’ve yet to ride it other than test riding it up and down their street.  I’m excited to get her out there this weekend!  We are headed to the lake for the long weekend so I won’t get much riding in, but I plan to do a little.

One of my favorite places to run.  Long and flat.

Tonight we are headed to a local park for some trail running practice. I’ve never ran there and we had some good storms this morning so it could make for an interesting experience.   It is not a long flat crushed limestone path like the above picture.

What are your plans for the long weekend?
