bike heaven


thanks to duff and phelps, my dear, sweet husband has gained some unwanted lbs. so...to get back in shape, (and since he absolutely DESPISES running...unless he's chasing some sort of ball), he decided to start biking. for those of you unfamiliar with the biking industry (as i was not so long ago), it's not the most inexpensive thing in town. after lots of searching, surfing, comparing, contrasting, price matching and more, ryan finally purchased a bike...a cannondale synapse 3. and he is in love. i don't doubt that he still loves me and leah, he just really loves his bike right now. it was like christmas all over again when the box was shipped to our house (as noted by that crazy look in his eyes). after a few rides (and much thanks to jona), we now know what other pieces of equipment are essential. coming soon...pics of ryan in much-coveted spandex.

congrats ryan! jonathan is very excited for you (as am i!) hopefully this bike will provide hours and days of enjoying the bay area peninsula. we are jealous.

ps: kelli, spandex is an absolute must. it took me awhile to get used to the idea with jona, but it is an absolute must. and watch out, ryan just might be considering shaving his legs soon! :) ha!

Awesome. Now we just need to get you a bike, right?

Yeah Ryan! Way to DENY those runners once again. I am so jealous that it is warm enough to bike there. Our streets have been pure ice for about a month now...

This is Jim's dream. He has a little nest egg just sitting, waiting for him to pick out the bike. He hasn't fallen in love just yet. BTW, on a healthy note, my bread recipe can be found on a blog to which I contribute. Look for the food for thought link on my blog (under favorites). There is a condenced recipe for small mixers and a regular recipe for large mixers.

Awesome bike. Looks like you can do some serious biking.

I put together a Dora the Explorer bike today for Hailey. That's about as close to biking as I've gotten. I don't think she is going to let me ride it, though.
