Beach Cruiser!

I got a little beach cruiser today! Yay! It's super cute, with white fenders and pink flower stencils, oh I also got a little white basket to go with it. The only problem is, I do not know how to ride a bicycle. But I am going to start learning today. At this rate, I am confident I'll be ready for next year's Tour de France. Ding dong ding dong, move aside Lance, Princess Cat coming through!

Here is the little tea cup ding dong bell. Isn't it cute?

OMG!!!! If you have $$ to throw around, send it to Germantown!!!! You are crazy!!! Better save the $$ for me to decorate your pad with.

LOL. You made my morning.

To make your afternoon -- I got the bike near my friends C & D's house, since the bike was too large to fit into my car, D (a dude) rode it back to his house, haha! I am temporarily storing it at their house pending bicycle riding proficiency.

Pei said...

LOL. Okay, you should not buy a bike that doesn't fit in your car, unless you're going to get a bike rack. It makes it really inconvenient if people want to go for a ride somewhere far!

Of course, I'm getting ahead of myself. You need to learn how to ride around the block first. Good luck!

Oh, it'll fit into my car, as long as I pull the backseat down... I had too much crap in my car to do it yesterday.

Cat said...

Bella dear, I am saving money! I am going to ride the beach cruiser to work, hence saving gasoline and auto maintenance costs... see?

Pei said...

Remember to buy a helmet. And knee guards. And elbow guards. And flashing lights so cars don't hit you.

OMG, it's going to be a bloodbath...poor kitty!

Cat said...

Never mind. I'll buy a full body armor, and humongous pink flashlights, people will see me from a mile away.

Fine, that's about the size of the first bicycle I tried at the store... and I was tempted to get training wheels for my beach cruiser... but I figured dignity was pretty important too :-P

I bet that in a week, that bike is going to be Cat's clothing rack.

Cat said...

I shall prove you all wrong... I will be biking to farmer's market, to work... to the beach! Besides, I am cutting back on spending totally. No more purses, clothes...
