Getting Fat? The Story of my New Bike
Ever since I turned 28, or maybe even a little bit before, I felt like I was getting fat! Strange because only a month ago or so, I thought the totally opposite. Anyway, it did not help that last night while I was riding home on my bike, I went over a speed bump and CRUNCH my seat broke right off into about 3 pieces. Upon looking at it when I got home, the bolt just snapped right in half! Maybe I was right about getting fat... Time to really start watching again. My mom sent me way too much Easter candy, I have absolutely no control when that stuff is in the house...this is why I never buy it myself.
But, at least this was a good excuse to finally get a Dutch bike. My old bike while still a decent bike has some issues and it is certainly not as convenient and comfortable as a Dutch bike. So today I went to Amsterdam to buy a bike that I saw there last month at Decathlon. Well I got there and they did not have it! I was so pissed. It was the only decent bike I saw that was for a decent price...then I remembered that I also saw one online at V&D but they did not have it in Haarlem. So before I got too upset I went over to the Amsterdam V&D. It did not look like they even had bikes at all then, one the last floor, way in the back, there it was, my new bike! I bought it and brought it home and an quite happy already.
So one down one to go, got my bike, now I just have to get not fat again...
