Dewey and Jessica have known me since I was nineteen. Anyone that has known me that long, and still talks to me, is a true friend.
Suffice it to say, these two have a permanent place in my heart.
So a few months ago, when they realized one of their dreams and bought a bike shop, I knew that I had to support them…by purchasing a new bike.
(You might remember that my fancy bike was stolen last year.)
And beside my awesome new bike and my amazing old friends, there’s an even cooler piece to the bike story. Dewey and Jessica didn’t buy just any bike store. No, the bike store they bought, The Pedal House, is the same bike shop where I rediscovered my love of bikes in college. It was also where I bought my first-ever “grown-up” bike, of the Kona mountain variety, back when I was nineteen. I still have my Kona, with all the original Pedal House stickers.
The circle of life is complete. Especially if life=bicycles + friends.
I’m off to ride my new Bianchi. She’s too pretty not to hop on.
The bicycle is the most civilized conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart.” -Iris Murdoch
