My Bicycle (Shimanami Kaido)

I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride it where I like

While I didn’t love the bicycle I had on the Shimanami Kaido, it was a very steady steed.  I wasn’t very sure of my bike at first, and it felt like it handled in a funny way, but the more you ride it, the more you feel confident with it.  My bicycle got me to where I needed to go.  It was strong and sure.  By the end of the trip, I was starting to pop a few wheelies and suddenly feeling sad that the adventure was ending.  I didn’t want to say goodbye to my steady steed but all good things must come to an end.

My bicycle wasn’t the best bicycle on the trail, and it was missing a front basket which would have helped me a lot.  I still wouldn’t do anything different as my Onomichi Bicycle was ever so reliable.  I just wish I had named her before I started my trip.
