And so it begins…

Ahem….testing…testing….is this mic on? Speech to text enabled? ….excellent…

I suppose introductions are in order. My name is Edwina and I am a fine example of a Waterford steel bicycle. If you’ve met me on the road, you’d remember me. I’m absolutely stunning. Pale yellow finish with silver trim, accented by lovely S&S couplers. Who ever thought a bike couldn’t be elegant?

Oh, sure, there are some sleeker racing bikes out there, but, me? I’m designed for touring. Steady, all-day riding. That’s my game. While you often find me tooling around the upper Midwest, I’ve travelled in eight states and two provinces. But this year….this year, I’m going to do a transcontinental bike ride. San Diego, California to Tybee Island, Georgia.  In a month! Woohoo! No sitting on the shelf this year for this steely beast! Well…maybe…

I’m going to get to do that transcontinental if and only if my human gets their butt in shape. You see, my human is…uh…errr….how do I put this delicately?!?!?!?….uh….my human is….uh….not the swiftest pair of legs on the planet. That’s a problem. Oh, sure the human claims it is an age thing. Hrrrmpph…some of the humans we ride with are in their 70’s and 80s and we can’t keep up. Nope. Not buying it.

So to keep my human honest and to keep prodding that sorry human posterior into riding, I’ve started this blog. Here I will squeal (excuse me, report) on my human’s progress (or lack thereof).  Stay tuned…
