Holly's Red Bike

I feel that it is well past time that I introduce you to my bike. Seeing as I called this blog "Holly's Red Bike", I really have been lax in talking about biking. However, I only started writing this blog in rainy November and I haven't been cycling lately.

My bike is my "engagement ring". When Dean and I got engaged while SCUBA diving (another story I should blog about sometime!), I gave him a diving watch (since I was the one doing the proposing). Sometime afterwards, he took me on a hike up First Brother mountain in Manning Park, presented me with a bike catalogue and said I could have my pick. A bike in lieu of an engagement ring. Perfect! My shiny red Norco Monterey was my first bike since the one I bought when I was 12 with my allowance money. Riding my bike makes me happy and I love living one block from the bike route.

I just got my bike tuned up for spring last Friday. On Saturday (when this photo was taken), we went on a family bike ride to "Bike the Blossoms" as part of the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival. Vancouver has hundreds of beautiful cherry trees and Saturday was a lovely sunny day. A good time was had by all and it felt fabulous to be back riding my red bike!
