November 10, 2020-The first RIDE!

 There was still some traces of snow, here and there on the parking lot of our apartment building as we got ready to take the "first ride", although be it a short one on our Townie 21d's. It was sunny, slight breeze and around 37F degrees, we headed out to take the bikes to Old Town Bike Shop for "tune up's" and to have some accessories added. It's been a couple of years since we've ridden two wheeled bikes but we headed out and took to it just fine as we rode over the the credit union first then down the Shooks Run Trail towards down town and headed over Cascade Ave. bike lane to take us to the bike shop. We got there, really do like the way these bikes cruise. We got there a bit before opening time but the service tech came out and wrote up our repair tickets for us then took the bikes in. We waited outside in the chilly sunshine for about 15 minutes. We were helped by the store owner, Jon Crandell himself to find a few the wanted accessories. Boy bike shops really have almost "bare shelves" these days due to Covid Virus's!! 

  We left the shop and walked the 5 miles back to the apartment, stopped and had a great lunch a local cafe, the sun was now much warmer, it turned out to be a excellent fall day. Now we just have to wait for the call saying their done and we can go pick the bikes up. Hope to get them by the weekend as it's suppose to get a bit warmer!! :)
