Trek Women
October 17, 2007


Yes, I have acquired a new addiction.  It is biking. I used to make fun of the Loveman for his biking addiction.  You know, the way he’s always drooled over bikes, bike parts and cycling gear.  Well now I am eating my words as I am turning into the Loveman.  My name is Susan and I am a bike addict.

When I visited the Trek headquarters this past July I had the opportunity to meet the Lime bike. During our breaks I rode it around the parking lot and kind of fell in love with it.  Lime2_5 It has been three months and I have been unable to stop thinking about it since I left the Trek headquarters in Waterloo, Wisconsin.  I am always looking at the Lime online and telling people about how perfect the Lime would be for them when I find a good fit.  Lime3_2 I find myself fantasizing about riding the Lime around the yard with my big monkies while towing the little monkies around in a trailer.  Finally I decided to bite the bullet and get one.   I told the Loveman and he said, “Well, then I want one too.”  Of course he did because he’s a bike addict.  I’m convinced if I said I was going to get a unicycle that he would have wanted one as well.

Lime4_3 Within hours we purchased a white Lime with pink accents and a silver matted Lime with royal blue accents.  The Loveman had them assembled in no time and before we knew it we were chasing the kids around the yard and having a ton of fun.  After a while the Loveman and Liam came up with the game Lime limbo.  They were doing the limbo under the badminton net while riding their bikes.  It was hysterical…especially when I took the whole net down after catching my handlebars on it as I was doing the limbo.  Yes, I am a Lime limbo loser but at least I have something to aspire to.  I can’t wait to see what other fun family “Lime” adventures lie ahead!  Stay tuned.


Great blog Susan! Tim and I look forward to reading them each time and they make for some entertaining dinnertime conversation.
