It’s time to participate in the April A-Z Blog Challenge. I will be blogging every day in April, with Sunday’s off.
The topic for each day will begin with the designated letter of the alphabet.
This Tuesday’s letter is Y for Yesterday.
Back story to Yesterday
|My Old Bike|
I thought that I might prefer a plain old fashioned cruiser with pedal brakes.
We went over to the island bike shop to see what they had. We showed Tom, the owner, a picture of my old bike. I explained that even though it was 15 years old, it was basically brand new because I hardly ever rode it. He told me that my old bike was way too big for me. Apparently, when you are seated on a bike your feet should touch the ground. Mine didn’t.

The first one was a Schwinn S1 Womens.
I immediately felt steadier on it. My feet touched the ground and there was no shifting of gears to worry about.
The next one I tested was a Pure S Lowstep by Trek.

So I chose the Pure S. I had a choice of bright green or purple. I picked the purple one.
We were up early because Kelly and Sue were coming to clean our house. They come every three weeks. I love Kelly and Sue.
Part of my daily morning routine is to take pictures of the start of the day.

While Kelly and Sue performed their magic, we went to the Chicken or The Egg
In the afternoon we took our bikes (my new purple one) over to the island to ride. It took about 15 minutes to put the bikes on the bike rack, 20 minutes to drive over to the island and then another 5 minutes to take the bikes off the bike rack.

But I have to say Pat was right. Although it was brief, I enjoyed my time on my new purple bike.
So that’s what we did yesterday. It wasn’t very exciting, but I bet if I hadn’t written this post about yesterday, and if you asked me today what I did yesterday, I probably wouldn’t have been able to tell you.
P.S. Kelly, who is about 5” taller than me and 20 years younger, took my old bike. I’m sure she will enjoy it.
