Congratulations to Heike – commenter #2! Thanks to all who participated!

Imagine… … … the wind at your face.

Fresh air.

Just you and the faint sound of road passing beneath your feet.

I wish you guys could really see the hill grade… and it’s gravel. I am so tough.

In the not-so-far-away past, I competed in my fair share of sprint-distance triathlons (and one Olympic distance tri!). I started in 2001… My short-lived obsession brought me back to some old childhood loves… swimming and bike riding.

Fast forward to 2012… life is a bit different. My kids are older, life has gotten fuller, and I haven’t done a triathlon in a couple of years.

Which means I have again stepped away from those childhood loves.

In early summer, Huffy contacted me for a program called Huffy Moms on Bikes.

I was all, “Gosh… I sure do miss bike riding…”

All the thinking again about biking had me reminiscing about those good ol’ elementary days… My parents got me THE COOLEST bike. She was a deep red with white wall tires, a basket on the front… AND A BELL. I remember riding it to school and kids being impressed with my white walls.

Enter: The Huffy Regatta.

I’m not riding a bike to school anymore, but… this girl kinda makes me wish I did!


Disclosure: As part of the Huffy Moms on Bikes program, Huffy send me this cute bike.

I had 2 requirements for me to agree to this deal:

  1. I needed gears. I live in a VERY hilly area. No gears, no bikey.
  2. It had to be charming. I have a road bike. I don’t need sporty.

The Regatta delivered. From the “good old days” styling to the satchel on the back. There’s potential in that satchel… a jaunt to the farmer’s market for fresh produce. But it also serves as a great spot for my helmet…

I imagine when Olivia is tall enough, she be begging to ride it. Heck, she’s not tall enough and she already is. What can I say, she loves to ride bikes and SHE HAS GREAT TASTE!


Contest is now CLOSED.
