This past week, Anna and I bought new bikes.
I've had my previous bikes for years, but they aren't so great for group rides or long distances (that aren't triathlon training or races).
So now I've got a new road bike, and she's a real beauty.
Coincidentally (or maybe not so much), her nickname is going to be Black Beauty.
Like the classic book by Anna Sewell and the subsequent movie.
We went on our inaugural ride (a short one) last night, and the bikes felt light as a feather.
Anna hasn't had a true road bike before, and she was shocked at how easy it was to go fast.
Can't wait to get out on some longer rides and train for a century ride later this summer!
