Our Bike Adventures

It has been almost three years since we got our bikes. I used to ride my bike all the time when I was little, but eventually I got tired of it and didn't enjoy it anymore. I thought I would never care about riding bikes again. Then Steven found his bike at a pawn shop, and I knew I needed one too after seeing how much fun it looked. A few days later we found my bike on craigslist and drove to a questionable part of town to get it. It was owned by a guy who got it in exchange for a tattoo. He looked very intimidating but was actually a pretty nice guy and sold me the bike for 35 bucks. 

I started taking pictures of our bikes at some of our favorite locations we've discovered. All of these were taken on my old camera so excuse some of the funny colors.











I never knew how much fun riding bikes could be! There are so neat things in our city that we have discovered while biking and I can't wait to see what else we will find!

  1. cool. i just love riding my bike just for the sake of riding, not really going anywhere. its easy to find some awesome things. morning and evening rides are the best, especially because the light is soft and golden, like is pictured here. great shots!

    1. Thanks! I've never gone on a morning bike ride, only in the evening, but it sounds fun and like a good way to start the day!

  2. My boyfriend and I always ride to places since we don't own a car, and it's not only fun but only keeps us well excercised, haha!

    1. It is great exercise! I only wish things weren't so spread apart in my city so we could do that too!

  6. I really miss having a bike, not that there's many places to bike around here without having to drive to some of the metroparks, I miss the freedom of having one though all the same. I'll have to keep my eyes open for one at a yard sale.
