At first, dreams seem impossible, then improbable, and eventually inevitable.

Never say or think "I CAN'T" before you give it a fair chance trying!!

GW, Ya make me cry! I hereby appoint you the site philosopher! Thank you!


And thanks all for the encouragement and giggles!

I had my first ride yesterday; after a few minor adjustments to seat, pedals and handlebars! Had loads of fun and can't wait to really 'get one with it', so I can cruise to the store!

Thumbs up

Marm, I love your bike!! The basket in the back is so cool and functional. Anything that helps a person exercise is OK in my book. Have fun and enjoy your new bike.

Urmaniac, your quote from Chris Reeve touched my heart; I have a son with a spinal cord injury, and we were very involved in his foundation when we lived in NJ.

One of the things I hope to accomplish with the bike is to get my son outside with me and go for rides, him in his power wheelchair, and me on my bike!

Hubby and I try to abide by "never say never or always". Maybe we're different than others, but we know our lives can change on a hairpin. This is one thing, though, that is a given. If you can get outside, you can stave off depression. I'm mad at myself this week because I got depressed about losing my hair to eczema. At the same time, my exercise class got cancelled for the week (I walk to it). In fact, I know that depression descended upon me for many reasons, but the major one was that I didn't get outside. You have to experience the sun in some form. So go for that tricycle. BTW, I've 'driven' one, and it isn't as easy as it looks!
