puredeluxelowstep_peacockIsn’t this a beautiful bike? It is the Trek Pure Lowstep, and you will note that the pedal has a forward design so that all your foot has to do to touch the ground is just to step down without leaving the seat. This is a “flatfoot” Townie bike and can be used on different terrains. Ahhhhh, it feels good and I will be purchasing this in early March. It is a little late in the year for a new bike, but I haven’t forgotten the bike lesson from a few months ago. Before I wound up in the walking cast (unrelated incident).

Remember that I did not learn how to ride as a child, so I am a ** year old novice. Is there something BEFORE a novice? If there is, then I am that. So what to do throughout the winter to gain endurance and to lose weight? I am a member of a wonderful fitness club with great personal trainers, and they have these “easy” little classes called Spin-Cycling. This is, basically, a very intensive class in indoor cycling, and as long as I am patient and don’t push myself further than I should, it will take care of my endurance problem.

At least it gets me exercising 🙂
