Meet Harley...

Shannon Reed

My Townie finally came in yesterday - I haven't had a bike since I was a kid, so I've never ridden a bike with speeds. I've actually wanted one for years, but have been kind of nervous because cyclists get hit here all the time.

Anyhoo, I took an Uber to the REI in downtown Denver to pick her up with the plan to ride the six miles back home. The trail was flooded out in many places from the rains; had to go through a few washouts, lots of water, up some hills, we broke the law (had to ride the sidewalk a bit), got wet and dirty - and it was the best. thing. ever. I named her Harley.

I feel like I'm 9 again. Townies rule... :)
