Biking Up the Rhein

Last night Jon got me a bike.  A brand new bike - out of a box.  
I was willing to settle on the Comfort bike but Jon was set on getting me the TREKKING 400.  
Sounds pretty impressive huh!  
In a nutshell it's a cross over.  
Not quite a mountain bike and not quite a cruiser.
Which I guess is perfect for me since 
I'm not quite a country bumpkin and not quite a city girl. 

Jon, the stud, actually assembled it with his few little bike tools in the parking lot.

And to celebrate our new found mobility 
we went on a 20km bike ride from our house up the Rhein and back again.

Here we are at the half way point getting ready to turn around and head home.  
Next time I'll have to stop and take some more pictures.  

Jon still needs to adjust a couple things 
and I really want to get a cushy seat 
but otherwise it's AWESOME!!!!

  Love it and I can't wait to ride it again tomorrow!

Yes, you read me right, I said tomorrow - I love my bike!



  1. YAY!!!! Awesome present - can't wait to see more pictures and hear of amazing adventures on your new two-wheels!

  2. Aw, how fun!!!!! That's fantastic!! :-D

    Oh, and I miss you like crazy. You're going to have to get over your aversion to the telephone so we can chat. ;-)

  3. That is awesome!! Love the pictures :-)

  4. What fun pictures!

    I LOVE my bike. Mr. P and I got bikes for our anniversary this past May. Now that its cooler, I'm looking forward to biking more. :)
