Earlier this week I mentioned that May is National Fitness Month. Did you know that May is also Bike Month? As part of Bike Month, I attended an afternoon bike ride yesterday with goodnessknows snack squares and PUBLIC Bikes in Santa Monica.
The ride was led by celebrity Whitney Eve Port. I love biking, but haven’t been doing it much lately. I used to bike a lot when I was training for triathlons and I really need to get back on the bike since I am doing the Redondo Beach Triathlon in June. Coming out to the bike ride yesterday was a great first step! The event was BYOB (Bring Your Own Bike) so I rented a bike from the local Santa Monica Bike Center and pedaled on over to the infamous Santa Monica Pier where I met up with everyone for the ride.
My friend Christine is a Santa Monica local and she joined us for the ride as well. I snapped this shot of us riding along the boardwalk in our bike group.
We snacked on some goodnessknows snack squares (my favorite was the apple, almond & peanut, dark chocolate) and chatted with some fellow bloggers such as Deanna from The Live Fit Girls and Rachel from Rachel Roams. I loved how the goodnessknows snack squares were divided into perfectly portioned squares.
At the end of the night they announced the winner of the PUBLIC Bike. It was ME! I was so shocked and excited! All night I kept thinking about how amazing it would be to win a bike. As my friend Xenia says, “Put it in the universe.” Well, I put it in the universe that I wanted this bike and I won it. I am so stoked! I recently rented office space near my house so I’m thinking about starting to bike to my office in it. Or maybe getting a baby seat for it and taking Baby Awesome for rides along the bike path. Summer is coming and this is perfect timing to get out on a bike and spend some more times outdoors.
Thank you to the folks at goodnessknows snack squares for hosting such a fun event. I can’t wait to keep you all posted on the adventures of my new bike here on Fit & Awesome.
What about you? Do you bike? What kind of bike do you have? What do you think I should do with my new sweet bike? Post in the comments and let me know!
