Really, this isn’t a ride report. It’s more like a dip into the ride report pool. On Wednesday of last week, realizing that I had less than an hour to ride, I took The Gazelle Champion Mondial down to the Cedar River Trail and rode like the wind! Okay, not that fast, but it felt fast to me. I was able to do about 17 miles in just over 45 minutes, which is pretty speedy compared to my ride speeds on The Raleigh, or god forbid, the other Gazelle.
I took just three photos, one of which is of the new handlebar wraps, so folks could see them.
Riding this bike is addictively fun. In fact, today I took my longest, hardest ride ever and it was amazing (more on that ride later). So I think it’s safe to say that this bike has won me over, and you’re all going to have to bear with excessive Gazelle Champion Mondial raving for a while. I know, we all miss The Raleigh, but when I fall, I fall hard. And I am definitely in a honeymoon period with this bike.
Here are my three Cedar River Trail photos. Stay tuned for the longer, more exciting ride report coming soon!
