I purchased two bikes shortly after the death of a family member (my grandmother and my father, different years, very different bikes). I figured it was my coping-with-death therapy.
I am still enjoying those bikes (a road bike and my commuter bike). But a couple of years ago I added a tri bike to the mix – just for fun, unrelated to a death in the family. This is the story of her name, Pure Happiness.
Do you have a bike with a name? Thinking about it?
