When people meet me they sometimes think I would always ride a fancy bike. But most days I ride a very plain hybrid. But what she lacks in style, she makes up in attitude. She’s very good at handling situations.
Like when would-be thieves approach her…
…She’s very feisty and doesn’t take any shit. She can handle whatever the city throws in her path.
Which is how she earned the name “Tank.”
However, Tank is a bit insecure sometimes. Especially around bike geeks.
So sometimes she gets angry and turns that attitude on me. She does things like finding a way to get her first flat tire in three years. In the pouring rain.
Okay, so she did get a little extra attention for that. And some down time.
She didn’t account for the fact I do have a fancier bike that I’ve been too nervous to ride in the city. But after a week on my other bike, I’m getting used to the idea of a better quality ride. So maybe I have been checking out other bicycles a little bit. Shhh…
