Hubby and I rarely buy each other birthday presents, so imagine my shock when I opened the front door and there was my new-- albeit vintage-- AMF Royal Master bike.
He found it on Craigslist.
I haven't been on a bike since 1996 so I was understandably shaky at first. But, I did make it up a few big hills and survived a very large pot hole.
Now I need to get a matching helmet, a basket with plastic flowers and a bell. Hubby says I need streamers for my handlebars but I think at almost 45, I'm too old for streamers on my handlebar. There's a fine line between looking cool and pathetic.
