The Bike (Meet Charley!)

Big day yesterday–I finally received my bike! And thanks to my new friend and cycling teammate Jan, it is out of the box and ready to hit the road. I don’t usually give names to my possessions, but I have a feeling that my relationship with this one is going to be quite spirited and complicated. I’ve decided to name him/her after John Steinbeck’s poodle, and transcontinental travel partner, Charley. Steinbeck described his pup as a “good friend and traveling companion”, and I hope that my Charley will be those things to me as well.
