About a week ago I ordered a new bike from a coffee/bike shop called Get Ya Fix, and I was so excited when they called me on Friday to say I could come and pick it up. Unfortunately I had to work that day, so I could only go the day after. Just my luck I guess, since it rained the WHOLE day on Saturday, and so you know, it doesn’t rain that often here in Perth.
But I just couldn’t bare to wait another day being apart from my precious new bike, so through the rain I went. I can still recall the feeling of cold and wet hitting my face as I rode down the street. I didn’t have to go crazy far, but when I got home, I could barely feel my fingers. Hot shower and a blanket were a must. And oh boy did that feel good!
After feeling less like a dead body, I cleaned up the bike and it’s looking gorgeous. I’m having some drop bars installed next week (can’t wait!) so will have to bring in the bike again. Now let’s hope it stays nice and dry by then!
