Melissa & Her Townie 7D

Melissa was recently given a Townie 7D from her husband, and she's in love. Here's her story:

You guys, I got a bike! 

Not just any bike, my dream bike. The one I've been eyeballing and dreaming about for 8 years.

Ben surprised the socks off me and gifted me this brand new Electra Townie 7D for Mother's Day. I cried, I squealed, it was awesome. To me this is not just a bike, it represents so many amazing adventures and memories ahead for my little family. Pulling Winston behind me in his bike trailer, cruising the beach this summer, riding to get ice cream, exploring Michigan trails, etc. Memories. Adventure. Exploration. I am one grateful girl. 

I had always put my bike dreams on the back burner for more important, immediate needs. And to paint a clear picture - my method of biking transit for the past 8 years has been a youth Huffy bike from the 90's. #classy

So allow me this moment - I have the best husband ever. I can't believe how sweet and thoughtful he is. I love him so, so much. And I never dreamed that I'd be cruising around on this dream machine for my first Mother's Day.

This white basket was an addition I had to have! It easily snaps on & off and you can take it in to the store to grab a few items. OR - you can tote your 5 lb. yorkie-poo around in it like me. ;)
