inflating a little girl's tire
|Terrified but excited|
After giggling like a school girl I took a deep breath and pushed off on my toes. Before you know it, I was riding! I may be a 35 year old woman but for those first few minutes I felt like a school girl and let me tell you, it was pretty amazing.
|Lance Armstrong has nothing on me!|
I am really looking forward to reacquainting myself with biking and my ultimate goal is to ride a bike from my home in Congress Heights to my office in Anacostia. Stay tuned while I document my journey to do just that. Already I have made plans to go bike riding with some of my Ward 8 neighbors. If I can accomplish my bike to work goal I can really see myself investing in a bike of my own.
Until then, introducing The Advocate, another black woman who bikes!
P.S. Please make a donation to WABA to support more programs like the free bike clinic and adult/youth bike education classes (go HERE for a schedule). You can also volunteer. WABA does really great work and can use all of our support. Think of it this way, a small donation is well worth the cost of admission to see me on a bike. I can guarantee you that one day I will fall and it will be hilarious.
P.P.S. To learn more about WABA's efforts East of the River contact the new East of the River Manager, Alex at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell him The Advoc8te sent you.
