|surly long haul trucker touring bike|
For a couple of years now, we've been dreaming of touring on a bike and we finally took the leap and purchased our first touring bikes: surly long haul truckers in smoggy pearl with bamboo fenders.
They go back to the bike shop today to have the front and back racks put on. I wanted to take a few rides in the meantime so we brought them home before the racks were in. The bike rides beautifully. There is always a rush of freedom and adventure that I feel when I am on a bicycle.

My first long bike trip was in sixth grade. The class had a bike trip planned from the school to the Nursing home where we sang and visited with the seniors that lived there. The nursing home was less than a mile from the school, but I didn't live near either location. I really wanted to ride my bike with everyone and ride to school. That meant riding the 8 miles from my house to the school. As I'd never done that before, my Mom followed me in her car to make sure I had no problems. All went well and I rode home that day happy and filled with a sense of possibility.
