New Family Member

Although I will never be a roadie - this happened....
Trek Madone 5.2 Carbon Fiber Women's Specific bike....with all kinds of fancy components that I don't understand.
The truth is that the summer here in the woods can be miserable with the ticks and the steamy swampy air...Thank god I don't eat red meat - read this article - Aside from causing red meat allergy the damn tick bites itch so bad they keep you up at night and scar your ankles and legs.  Soo I ended up adding this bad boy to the fleet.
Its pretty friken sweet - 
It was a big splurge but as my friends and the salespeople at the bike shop pointed out...I will have this for at least 10 years, because I am a cyclist I would definitely notice and get very frustrated with crap components on a lower end bike...this one has Ultegra on it..
So here's to going really fast and waking up at 4:30 to go for long rides before the traffic gets ridiculous!
I'm also convinced this will help me get to goal.
I've been holding steady at 168.4


  1. You will love her I'm sure of it!

  2. That is one awesome bike. I'm jealous! I'd love to start cross-training with a bike, but it's just not in my budget right now:(

  3. Nice bike, I like the color! I have a cheap bike now but at some point, when I can justify it, I'll upgrade to something much nicer such as Trek. Congrats on the addition!

  4. Its a cool ass bike! and I bet you kick ass riding it :)

  5. Awesome!! Best new family member ever!!!
