After sitting idle all winter in the corner of my apartment I decided it was time to unleash the Big Dummy for its first ride of 2009. I needed to drop off a Dahon Mu P8 test bike at Bow Cycle so Kurt rode the Dahon and I trucked along on the Big Dummy.
The right pedal fell off before I had managed 10′ on the Big Dummy – apparently I hadn’t gotten around to finishing the job of installing it sometime over the winter! With that small incident taken care of we rolled the 15kms to Bow Cycle enjoying a lovely spring day in Calgary.
On the way back from Bow Cycle I towed Kurt on his longboard for 15kms. Strangely enough this is an ideal arrangement for both of us…he gets to ride for a really long time with no pushing and I get a better workout…=-)
We stopped at Eau Caire for a drink and to people watch. When we ran into Rebecca and Angela of course they had to try out the Dummy.
I’m looking forward to lots of good times on this bike….=-)
