Luckily, in the meantime, I saved up for this little cutie! The doctor said bike riding would put less pressure on my foot, so I took him right up on his advice. Here's my new Huffy cruiser, which is real old school, like me. :D The design is Panama Jack, and it's got a cup holder and a small leather basket and a rear rack. Yesterday it joined me out on the greenway, giving me just as good--or even better--of a workout as walking! I also got lots of compliments on it, too, both on the greenway and Facebook. Hey, what can I say? She's a beauty!
One thing: I need to learn to pace myself. It's hard because riding a bike, even for adults, is great fun, but I'm not 17 anymore. Regardless, it made for an excellent way to speed up my heartbeat!
