Twenty years ago i was very passionate about riding bikes, i used to ride my bike to work/home 20 miles a day. I was in the best shape and i was able to eat anything i wanted without the fear of gaining weight. I loved the feeling a being free, feeling the wind on my face and the sun on my back. The world looks different on a bike. Then one day i was hit by a car and flipped over the handle bars, i wasn't seriously injured, i had scraps, bruises and road rash but nothing broken, only my will to ride a bike again. I guess they say if you fall off the horse you get back on it, i never did. Eight years ago i decided to try mountian biking, i always wanted to try it. I spent $1000 bucks on a custom bike and today it is sitting in my garage collecting dust. My Husband has tried to give that bike away, but i always tell him "No, i'm going to ride it." I think the time has come. I'm looking for a bike store to get it tuned up and i want to purchase a trailor for my son, just to pull him around town. One of my goals that i always wanted to do was ride my bike through Yosemite Valley. We live pretty close to Yosemite and i think it will help me find my passion agian.
