Well I'll be....

I just finished my first ride with my new shoes and pedals. I'm in love. Yes again. Did a little practicing in a grassy area (part of me was worried I would fall and break something before the Boulder Boulder Monday!) Did 12 miles real easy and felt wonderful, well except the whoha is just a little sore from Thursdays ride. No falls I consider it a success, not yet second nature but I think it will come!

And I need to give a huge shout out to the people(Julie and Adam) who helped me at the Westminster Bicycle Village yesterday. They were fantastic with this newbie! I was there for about 3 hours and Julie helped me find shoes install everything put me on a trainer for some tips. Adam helped with some install as well as showing a few basics on cleaning my bike and shifting advice. If your in the area and haven't shopped there you should, they were the best!

I adore my guys at our local bike shop! I love the great customer service I get to.
I also love the Tshirt quote on top of your side bar in regards to sucking at 3 sports instead of just one! Cracked me up!

Good luck tomorrow on your 10K!
