Pretty in Pink

My husband has been busy this week. He spent hours fixing up my Devinci after it was messed up by thieves. Then he spent more time fixing up my oldest bike, so I can ride it to work. I took it for a test ride in the park this afternoon and I like it. 

It's light and fast and handles fairly well with the new straight bars. This was my first proper road bike - a pink and white Gardin with blue accents bought in 1986. I used to wear matching pink, white and blue cycling shorts and jersey. Can you picture it? Too bad they wore out long ago. 

I hope this bike is less appealing to thieves. Although, now that I see it, I'm not so sure. I think it's Pretty in Pink with a cool retro vibe.

You know what I really hope? I really hope I can lock it inside. That is probably the only way to keep it truly safe at work.

  1. It's been a busy bike repair week but the results look so good. Hopefully you can find an inside spot at work for Miss Pink!

  2. Good luck with being able to keep it safe, we had a great weekend thank you for keeping Minnie for us.

  3. Sweet bike - with lots of miles and memories.
