ho ho holy awesome bike ride

Saturday was the most beautiful day for a bike ride.  OK, so realistically it was 37 degrees out and who knows what the wind chill was as I flew down the canyon at high {dad re:completely safe}speeds with the sun in my eyes making for lovely shadows, but maybe not optimum visibility.
 I've been waiting for this day for months and months so a little snow on the ground or just above sub freezing temps would not deter me from my fun.  The day dawned as the day I would hop on my brand new road bike and the whole paved world opened up to me.  I have been mentally plotting out long stretches of west facing road in my spare pondering moments.
 I started my maiden voyage at work on South Temple where Jameson {favorite cousin of the week, sorry lovely cousins, I do love you all}dropped off my new bike Friday afternoon. Then climbed the 11 blocks to the top of the avenues without having to weave up the hill one block at a time to catch my breath due to the old bike's lack of gears suitable for climbing.
Exceptions for bikes? Like a little sign. Kismet. Blessings from Heaven.

  4. Triple yes to bike riding. Jameson? I love that name. In fact, I picked that name to be my future son's name.
