Dan's bike

For my birthday Dan gave me his bike and souped it up mad. I’ve got a bike rack, a pannier, a rear view mirror, a bell, a front light and back light and best of all a BRIGHT orange and green neon safety vest. So sexy. Dan got a new (used) bike from Craig’s List that’s pretty sweet too.  It’s been awesome zooming around on my d’lux bike. Traveling around Reston it’s often just as fast to bike as to drive and plus my hair gets a free blow-dry and helmet head styling. I’m not looking forward to biking in snow and ice come winter, but for now biking is a breeze!

All I need to do is get a hold of this bike when I’m headed to the Farmer’s Market!

But even if you’re not such a biker babe, grab a two-wheeler Friday May 21st for the Washington DC Area Bike to Work Day.  Lots of info here.  It’s so easy to just get in the habit of driving everywhere, but having a bike in good working order where your helmet and lock are handy definitely pays off – make the most of this gorgeous spring weather (and all the bike paths around, especially in Reston) and bike to work this Friday!
