Lent Day 34

As promised, my new bicycle!!

I’m very excited about this. I’ve wanted a bike for a couple year now, but there was no place in our tiny apartment to store one. Well now that I have a garage, all I needed to do was find the right bike. Thanks to a helpful volunteer at the Great Maine Bike Swap, I ended up with this vintage beauty.

I don’t know the specific model, but it’s a Sears 3-Speed, probably from the 1960s. I’m thinking it definitely needs a basket, and a name. I’ll take any naming suggestions in the comments.

It’s been raining a lot the past few days, so I haven’t had much of a chance to ride yet (I also need to buy a helmet), but I can’t wait. My goal is to be able to ride to work by this summer (it’s about 8 miles).
