My bicycle and I are on the road again and we are both very happy about this. Today I saved 30 minutes getting to and from a showing by riding my bicycle rather than taking the subway. My bike is:
Extremely slow and ugly so nobody steals it — ever — even if I don’t lock it up. This is in direct opposition to my son’s bicycles which keep getting stolen because they’re nice. The trick is to ride around on a really beat up old bike that nobody else wants.
Healthy. Riding it is definitely great exercise, especially because it’s so slow and bulky.
I love riding my bicycle and we will be driving around town together from now until November hopefully (weather permitting of course). I take it to all of my downtown showings. I ride with my boyfriend and my son (and occasionally my daughter). We’re a two wheeling family.
See you on the Hudson. Remember, I’m the one wearing high heels. Ring your bell if you see me.
