Yay!!! My (hopefully, soon to be) bike is ready and at the shop! Whoo hoo! Can you tell I am excited???
I am going at lunch time to go and see if it will fit me and set it up. Which means I will have it for the rides this weekend!!!
Only problem is that now the doubt is beginning to creep in a bit. I am not the best cyclist (to say the least) but at least on the bike I have at the moment I don’t look out of place, and if I do manage to overtake somebody there is an enormous sense of joy, especially if they have a really zooty bike. Now I will be that person on the zooty bike getting lapped? Not good. People will laugh? Or think I am stupid for paying this amount of money when I can’t ride all that well?
Then there is also the cash situation. Both my husband and I work either in the automotive industry, or at a company highly reliant on the automotive industry and as we all know the automotive industry is not doing so lekker (well) at the moment? Am I being stupid for spending my savings on a bike when we don’t really know what next year holds?
As I said doubts????
Then again maybe I just think too much (is that possible) and should just put my cash down and get the bloody bike (which is what I am going to do) and worry about all the other stuff if it happens? It is a fantastic, fantastic, fantastic price and my dream bike. I have been staring at pictures of it since it came out in December last year but never in my widest dreams did I think there was ever a possibility that I could ever own one????
So doubts aside, this is my only thought for the day “please fit, please fit, please fit” I do think it is a bit ironic though that I am praying for an XS to fit when in clothing I wear an L or M??? When did a XS ever fit me – NEVER!
