Imagine my surprise when I walked out the front door this morning to head to the gym and found a bright red bicycle chained to my front yard fence! Yes, I was the lucky winner of a visit from the Bicycle Fairy. He came when I was working quietly in the living room watching Olympic coverage of Dressage via the web. Gemma heard him but she didn't bark.
Immediately I fished my Blackberry out of my bag so I could email the Bicycle Fairy a thank you. Lo and behold, I saw he had already sent me a message with the combination to the bike lock. I sent him a quick email, unlocked the bike and off to the gym I went.
Luckily one never forgets how to ride a bike - the last time I was on one was in graduate school! I pedalled my way through the streets of Capitol Hill and in no time at all I was at the gym. Oh the freedom and fun! Now all I need is a helmet and I am all set!
Thank you Karl for loaning me your zippy red bike. I'll take good care of her!
