"If the increase continues, the time is not very distant when not to own and ride a bicycle will be a confession that one is not able-bodied, is exceptionally awkward, or is hopelessly belated."-"The Bicycle Festival," July 13, 1895 New York Times

I'm still feeling high from our time out and about yesterday. Years ago I used to ride in my skirts and pumps and it felt like the most natural thing in the world. Sadly, life changed and for a couple of years I hardly rode my bike at all.
About 6 months ago I was in a motorcycle accident right there at 20th and Capitol. I’m still recovering from a shoulder injury and subsequent surgery. For six months I have felt old and broken and depressed. I don’t know what magic broke my funky spell and got me down to Old Sac yesterday, but I am so grateful. I feel like riding my bicycle is going to be my salvation. I can finally imagine getting to be my best self once again.
Your efforts, message, and example are so inspiring to me. I got up this morning and rode my bike to the grocery store (in a skirt!) and I find myself planning the rest of my week around what things on my to-do list I can accomplish by bicycle.
I just wanted you to know how grateful I am to have met you and what a gift yesterday was to me. I’m looking forward to getting some serious style on for our next ride!
See you next month...and Thank You so much.

We had such a good time! There are so many more pictures but not enough space. We will post the rest on the Cycle Chic Sundays! flicker group. Can't wait for the next ride!
