I've lost one of my biking buddies.....

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

but I won't let it stop me from riding. My friend quit her job last year and has gotten a part time job and is going to school full time. How could she do that to me?

Today I took off on my bike solo, with a plan in mind. I had decided to go to the grocery story (and pick up a few items for the crock pot lasagna recipe that a spark friend gave me) and then bike by work to get my schedule for next week. I decided to stay off the street and on the sidewalks and went at a time that was not too busy. It was a great ride and I planned the most efficient way to get to both places without having to cross too many busy streets. I went through two stop lights (which was a tad nervewracking) and it worked out just fine. I've decided to keep that particular ride on my weekly agenda.

If you get the itch, beam over to bike with me. I could use the company.

    riding alone can have a lot of benefits keep biking and remember don't let anything stop you major roads, hills, back roads, fast cars, are really just part of life!! we would never get in our cars if we worried about how many people will have an accident today. so pedal on and trust all is well

    when I first was reading the title of your blog sad thoughts came to mind of a lost person. emoticon I know many places have bike clubs you can join. I will think of you as I pedal away on my stationary bike. I gave up my flat lander bike when we moved to the mountains. emoticon Keep on biking...... emoticon

    Don't give up. You can go it alone.

    That's unfortunate but it sounds like you have adapted well. I always ride alone to work and I like the solitude and time to clear my thoughts.

    I would LOVE to ride with you, especially on the Katy trail! I live in the country and don't have suitable roads (too narrow, too curvy, too hilly, and people drive 60 mph)!

I will say that from the few times I rode my bike last year (before it ended up in a dumpster, which is a whole other story), biking uses a LOT of different muscles than almost any other exercise!

Keep on Keepin' On, LS!

    Good for you. You'll get used to riding alone. I do it most days.
