Jan 02 Bike Barn

I may have forgotten to post this…

I’m getting back into the saddle. My bike saddle, that is. Cycling season will be here before I know it, so I hopped on my Bowflex bike (which I adore) and opened on the Explore the World app on my iPad.

I chose Hawaii for this “trip,” hoping to catch glimpses of sun and sea. I think this app is awesome! I got to see the inner parts of Hawaii, not the ocean parts, but it was still cool. And there are tons of places to view while you ride!

Who knows where I’ll ride next… in the comfort of my living room. I might look for Egypt or somewhere hot. Meanwhile, my sweetheart got me a bike barn for Christmas, and it arrived! Time to put it up!

We’ll put down a concrete pad when it warms up a bit, but leveled out gravel will do for now.

Lots of parts, but everything is well labeled.

It came with the vent holes and everything pre-cut. It was just a matter of putting all together right.

Slowly but surely, it started taking shape. We had a “spatula” to help slide things together, and it helped. It was a tight fit, as it should be, to keep the weather out.

One of the last things to go in was the window. It’s plastic and allows for a bit of light inside.

It’s done!

I love it! My only complaint is that the locking mechanism is screwed on from the outside. So… it just take a screwdriver to bypass the lock. This is behind a locked gate, so I feel it’s pretty secure.

It fits my bikes perfectly! Eventually I may put a few hooks in for my helmet and some other items. I’ll wait until the weather is a bit better and I’m getting ready to ride more. I’m so happy with my new bike barn!

It all started with my friend, Christine. She called me a Viking. It's because I like endurance sports as well as lifting heavy things. Plus, my heritage includes Norwegians... It struck a chord somewhere deep down. I suddenly liked the idea of not having to be a small, slender person. I could be strong and thick. I could have mass. I don't want to be overweight or obese, mind you. I just don't like trying to be a waif when that is very likely unattainable to me. I have muscle (under this fat). I like being strong. So this is my journey of becoming more fit and liking the fact that I will never, NEVER weigh 120 pounds.
