*deep breath*

So, it finally stopped raining so I went to the bike shop to pick up my bike and there it was! and it was pretty and shiny and beautiful and allllllllllll mine! and I bought a helmet because I'm supposed to so I don't hurt myself and it's black and slick and makes me look like a real big dork.

*big breath*

So I said thank you to the nice man and went outside and sat on my bike for the first time ever! and I pedaled to the corner and tried to play with the gear shifting thing and what do you know, I knocked the chain right off of the bike... before I got to the corner. so I went back to the nice man who laughed and showed me how to fix it and I blushed and said thank you and went right back out and put back on my dorky helmet and rode to... lolitasir's house! but she was busy and naked and didn't want to come down and told me to go and play by myself...

Not that kind of play! Pervert.

*big breath*

So I called up eisa and told her to go to the boat basin in Riverside Park and meet me there with the Puppy Monster and she said when and I said NOW! and she said OK I have time to take a shower and I smiled and said no you don't! and I pedaled into the park and I rode really really fast and it was fun! and I passed people running and got to the boat basin way before silly Sarah so I sat on the bench and stared at my bike in awe like I was staring at my first pair of breasts.

*big breath*

And she showed up and said NEAT! and I said YEAH! and I modeled the helmet and she agreed I look like a dork. And we sat and talked and then she went for sushi yum yum and I went to bike some more so I got back on and started to pedal south and I kept going and going until I was all the way at the Intrepid! WOW! And I saw the water and ducks and geese all along the path and pretty people jogging and cool forgotten about metal thingies and it was so neat cause I've never been in these places before and like I was biking there on my brand new bike!

*big breath*

So I stopped at the Intrepid because I knew if I didn't I would have wound up in Brooklyn because I just didn't want to stop and I went to a machine and got a drink and just stood there and drank and smiled while people looked at me funny. It might have been because I was so happy... or because I look like a dork in that silly helmet. Ha! and then I got back on my bike and pedaled ALL the way back home except I missed my stop! or something but I soon found myself on 104th street which wasn't so bad so I got out of the park and went home.

*big breath*

And I'm all dirty because of all the puddles I went through and I'm kinda sweaty and nasty but that's ok because I kind of like that. Hee. And I really remembered how! like really how, not just kind of how. ok starting was kind of hard but I figured it out and I wasn't at all weebly-wobbly ok maybe just a little but just at the beginning and I figured it out and stuff. but I still don't know how to really use the gear shifty thingy but that's ok I learn sometime. and my legs sometimes burned a little but that's because I'm a fat dork and I didn't mind one bit and I kind of liked it. Weird!!!!


*pant pant pant*

And I didn't fall once! Ok, just once... but that was once I was in my house and forgot there was a bike there and I tripped over it. Hee!

You most certainly can. I really do like it. I need to learn shifting, and figure out a position to allow my bum not to hurt, but I'm going to enjoy this.

in the front, bigger is harder, in the back, bigger is easier.. I'd suggest riding around the parking lot, and finding where the good cadence is... the biggest shifter tip I ahve for city riding, is that you should downshift on the rear-gear at stoplights, so that you can get back up to speed without grunting.. :-)

as for the seat. sometimes messing with the positioning, but since its been a while since you've been taken for a ride... well... you just might have to keep it up until it feels good.


or get a seat with more cushin for the pushin... iffn ya know what I mean.

This makes me want to squeeeeeeeeeeeze you!
Jun. 9th, 2006 12:09 am (UTC)

You are the cutest thing ever.

A dork perhaps, but a lickable one. :)

OMG... someone sounds... *little* with glee! :D

what kind of gear shifts do you have?
grips or triggers?

I started with grips and had Tone swap them out for triggers. Easier to control.
Jun. 9th, 2006 01:22 pm (UTC)
Triggers, I believe.
Jun. 9th, 2006 01:31 pm (UTC)
well grips are like motorcyle revving. Remember those bikes that looked like motorcycles and had the rev up handles that made the sounds?! Man I loved that!


I fnd triggers easier to control that grips.
My two cents.

And for the record you will fall at least once.
It's inevitable.
I went over my handle bars once on my way to the Brooklyn Bridge once. I was lucky since I didn't wear a helmet.

Be careful out there and ride safe.

Clearly we need a picture with you modeling your bike and helmet. :)
Jun. 9th, 2006 03:59 am (UTC)
I vote yes please!
Jun. 9th, 2006 01:39 am (UTC)
Too much fun! I miss my bike. I used to ride all the way from capitol hill in DC to Leesburg, Va, for very much the same reasons.... now I want to get another one!

Look both ways, and alway wear your helmet, dork!

I've been wanting a bike for ages. I love my Rollerblades but sometimes only a bike will do.

By an incredibly strange coincidence, I just picked up my bike from an overhaul this evening. It's been stored away for several years now. I rode. It was fun. And so quick! Yay for bikes.

Have you been reading Kerouac again lately? Next thing we know, you're off going cross-country on yer wheels, drinkin', an' smokin' and listenin' to jazz.
Jun. 9th, 2006 01:23 pm (UTC)
I think I'll wait for me to get a motorized version to do that. ;-)

But lord would it be fun.
Jun. 9th, 2006 03:56 am (UTC)

um.. please?
Jun. 9th, 2006 06:39 am (UTC)
So glad you are enjoying the bike!

Hey you! I followed a link from lj-nex0s, but I think we've met briefly through lj-rdhdsnippet or lj-scherzoid. I remember what you look like, anyway. :-)

And this is the cutest ever, and I'm gonna point my bike-fiend friend to it because he'll get a kick out of it. And.

Great Story!!

Love, love, loved it :)

Hooray for you and your dorky helmet!!
Jun. 9th, 2006 11:35 am (UTC)
You're so adorable!
Jun. 9th, 2006 02:39 pm (UTC)
I agree, you are adorable. And I can totally picture your wild, exuberant, sweaty ride. :)
Jun. 9th, 2006 04:39 pm (UTC)
You're cuter than Hello Kitty !
Jun. 9th, 2006 06:09 pm (UTC)
I dunno about being cuter than Hello Kitty... but cute, yes you are (said in "talking to the kitty" voice.

It is amazing what taking a different mode of transpo can do to your perspective. There's a lesson there somewhere.

Anyway, it sounds like you a made a good purchase. Do be careful please, you are needed.

Way to go. Enjoy the freedom of the road.
