The Corral: Raleigh & My First Bike Date
The Hubby and I took our Raleighs out for a ride and we took in a movie. They got a chance to bond while we were in the theatre. It was the longest ride I had taken her on and it was pretty fun. It felt really small and I felt a bit vulnerable on the roads but she was smooth and so pretty. With only three speeds it was a bit of a challenge on some of the hills but not terrible. I think that if we hadn't been late dropping off Miss S at the babysitters and we had been able to go more slowly it would have been easier. I love the details like the birds in the chain ring and she has an odometer. I also really love that the hubby and I can match when we ride them as corny as that may be.
Edit: My Raleigh is a 1970 and the Hubby's is a 1969. Thanks Doohickie for the tip on how to find the date.
