#MakesMeSmileMondays A New Bike!

Yesterday, I headed to Boulevard Bikes in Logan Square will one goal in mind: to buy myself my new bicycle.  I came, I saw my bike, I conquered: after a few adjustments and the installation of my new bell, I happily rode home on my new bicycle, a cream colored Bianchi Cortina Dama.

While I did bike a few miles today, my new bike will be put to the test tomorrow when I ride to and fro work. From the little bit I rode today though...I was delighted! It is so. much. easier to maneuver than my old bicycle, so lightweight thanks to a light aluminum frame, so fast thanks to 700c wheels and a 24-speed drivetrain. And best of all, it just comfy - the riding position is excellent. 

If you haven't been to Boulevard Bikes, check them out next time you're in Logan Square. I prefer to buy local and Boulevard Bikes offers one free year of service with every bike purchase. They are friendly and helpful, and are good at finding just the right bike you need for your lifestyle. (I also popped into City Lit next door. So thrilled to have an independent book store in my 'hood!).

Here's to a spring and summer (and winter and fall!) of happy biking to all!
