This week has been quite lovely. 
The weather is warm with blue skies and a nice breeze in the valley.
Perfect for going out on a leisurely ride and take 
in the sights and smells of fresh air and gorgeous flowers..

I took "Bella" out today with the kids.
Yes, I named my bike.
It's like how men name their cars.

I love my bike. She is beautiful. 
That's just how she got her Italian name. 
tee hee....
I decided to get a bike this Summer for long rides
with the family through the trails.
Oh yeah! and to get some exercise. 
I am gonna get in shape this Summer.

I have to take it slow though.
It has been some time since I have been on a bike.
I was pretty much huffing and puffing...whoosh! 
Hopefully by the end of Summer I will be able to make
it through the hills without having to walk the bike (GRIN). 

Happy Summery Day
to you all!!!


  1. La tua nuova bicicletta è bello!!!

    Heehee, hope I translated that correctly *grin*. Love your new bike :) I haven't rode one in a couple of years either but I've got my eye on a couple of vintage ones similar to yours with the baskets in front. Have fun riding it :)

  2. I love your bike and I LOVE her name!! How beautiful and fitting! xxoo

  3. I got a bike from my kids for mothers day and I ride it almost everyday, once or twice about 4 to 6 miles every time. I love it! You'll get used to it. I rode mine around in the church parking lot across the street for 15 minutes to a half an hour at a time for a couple weeks til I got used to it!! Now I dont have any problems going for 5 or 6 miles. but I'm not riding up hills! Have fun on your bella! MIne is PINK and cream! very similar to yours!
    have a great day!

  4. Bella is a beauty! Your photos are fabulous!

  5. Even though it's not my favorite colour red, I adore adore that bike. I want one of those so badly. With a basket too!!

  6. I love Bella, she is a beauty. We have been fixing up our bikes but they are nothing like Bella. Clarice
