In February 2014 I purchased my Electra Townie from Bike Tech in Olympia, WA. I didn’t know I was going to fall in love with cycling.
It started in November of 2013 when I decided I needed to be physically active. NOTE: I didn’t say “more physically active”. I was living a very sedentary lifestyle and I needed to get up off my tuchus! Tuchus = cute Jewish word for butt.
My very first ride was only about 15 minutes. I think my second ride wasn’t much longer. But it didn’t take too long and I was all over the trails in Thurston County.
