Bicycle Maiden Voyage!

OMG! I am so excited
and check that smile out - no bugs!
Yes, I have ridden a bike in the past but, it has been nearly 3 years since I have been on my bike so, this was an accomplishment!
Last weekend my friend Janet had her hubby John helped me tune my bike - I now know how to change a tire if the need should arise - thank heaven for thorn liners - or whatever the technical term is!
A new helmet, gloves and off I went! No spills, no slips and a great ride - 6.6 miles in a little over 30 minutes - and I took a little rest of about 2-3 minutes at the half way point - just because! I still have a little issue with the right hand numbing but I am going to give it a few more rides before I consider adjustments!
I plan to get a picture of this the next time I go out! Actually may happen as soon as tomorrow - a ride to my Mom's and back - a little over 10 miles total - unless I wimp and have her give me a ride home which would require me to walk back over another day to get the bike!
This has been an amazing day for fitness - interval workout before boot camp and a perfect ending with a bike ride!
Now for a nice little soak!
