Memorial day weekend in Seattle was filled with rain, gray clouds, and the occasional sunshine that peaked through the clouds. On Saturday afternoon, my parents and I, including my cousin, Vanessa, went bike riding in Seward Park. I haven’t bike for awhile so my thighs were aching when I came back home. The last time that I bike was when I studying abroad in Japan three years ago.
The next day, however, we decided to return one of the mountain bikes and the cruiser. My dad likes his, so that was a keeper. I decided that I should save up my money for a hybrid bike or a better quality one if I can find one that fits my size. Being 5′ in a half can be a challenging when it comes to good bikes. My mom, on the other hand, didn’t like the cruiser. She said that it was difficult to pedal in the park. I like her blue cruiser, but if we’re biking around the park especially around those small hills in Seattle…, boy oh boy, that’s a lot of energy!

What kind of bikes do you guys ride? Do you have tips for those who are short like myself?
