New Bike - Schwinn Women's Clear Creek

So, I did it.  I went out and spent a little extra to buy me a decent bike.  My previous bike was a cheap K-Mart bike.  It wasn't very comfortable, seeing as it was a mountain bike.  I was constantly bending over, which was really giving me a backache.  I had done some search online and found that Schwinn 26" Women's Clear Creek - Plum was what was branched under as a comfort bike, something perfect for urban, non-hilly areas.  Boy, is it ever comfortable.  I sit up straight, since the handle bars are higher than the seat.  My husband even commented about how much better my posture was.  I love it!

I've taken the bike out two days in a row.  Talk about a burn!  I've been going non-stop for twenty minutes, which is a record for me.  On my previous bike I went ten before I was stopping to give my back a rest.  Now it's not my back that hurts, but my thighs that BURN!  Talk about a huge difference.  I'm so glad I made this purchase.  Sure, it was nearly $200, but it was well worth the extra money to get a really comfortable bike.

Now I think I have found me a hobby.  I loved bicycling as a kid, and I realized that I still love it, as long as I have a comfortable bike.  It's going to help me shed the pounds away!
