Group Not Required

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

I enjoyed a 12 mile bike ride this morning on the paved trail near my home. I was no speed demon, but I was no slouch, either. For several months I had ridden every Sunday with a group. Unfortunately for me, the group has taken to other endeavors, some in places that are not convenient for me, and some dirt trail riding -- complete with ruts and mounds and tree roots -- that would require a different bicycle. The last time I rode our paved trail was November or December. I've missed it. Although I'd like to find a new group or partner, I won't wait to go riding again.

    I wish that I had a bike so I could ride with you! I did 20 miles on the stationary bike on Monday and 11.34 miles yesterday. It was fun!

    I cannot wait for the weather here to cooperate so I can ride again. The only time I have ever ridden with a group is during a "paid-for" ride of 50 miles. I ride by myself all the time and love it.

    emoticon Branching out and doing your own thing is just fine -you would have peace and time to contemplate things on a nice ride like that with no distractions. A good 'me' time :)
