Riding a bike!

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

I am learning to ride my bicycle all over again. Never having been the most confident or proficient of cyclists I decided that rather than let it go rusty in the garage I should get back on it. Have been out a few times so far & went for a 30 minute ride with Tim on Sunday but couldn't stop the bike AND reach the ground with my feet at the same time, consequently I took a grand tumble on to the road. Now as memento's of the incident I have a lovely grazed elbow & a huge bruise on my calf where the bike fell on me & memories of Tim laughing at my fall from grace---MEN!!! Trouble with me is that I think too much about the why's & wherefore's instead of just enjoying the ride but I WILL conquer the damn thing!

Losing weight can be likened to bike riding I think ----you learn something, falter a little & then get back in the saddle! Anyway I may try again tomorrow if the wind has calmed down here. Don't think that I'll make Team GB at this year's Olympics! emoticon

  I did that once. Hit the curb. Fell off the bike. Went flying onto the sidewalk. Late at night. My bike in the street. Me on the sidewalk. And NOBODY stopped to help me! Even if he was a "man" and laughed at you, thank God that you have somebody to ride with :)

Keep on keeping on!
