Bicycle Maiden Voyage!

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

OMG! I am so excited emoticonand check that smile out - no bugs! emoticon
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! emoticon
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! emoticon
This has been an amazing day for fitness - interval workout before boot camp and a perfect ending with a bike ride! emoticon emoticon emoticon
Now for a nice little soak!

    I'm glad no bugs... they're a pain to get out of the teeth. I told John you said he has to tune up my bike so I can ride with you and he wants to know what the payment will be.

    Someday I've got to get myself a bike! I haven't ridden much since I was a kid & it always looks so fun. Good for you for giving it a go!
