I’ve been waiting to post this for awhile! A month or so ago, my bike was stolen. I loved my bike. It was my transportation, recreation, and source of joy, so I was pretty devastated. And times have been tough (student loans) so it was going to be difficult to get new one, at least right away. And then my amazing incredible friends pitched in and surprised me with enough money to get a new one. I can’t thank them enough, and I love this new bike even more than the stolen one (which is saying something!) This illustration is for them. Also for the curious (and most definitely for my friends and benefactors), here's a picture of my new bike. Rides like a dream. I had a chance to go on a forty minute bike ride yesterday and it was pure heaven.
