Today I finished my first challenge with Spark Team; Cycling - Road, Mountain, Fun, Racing. Having just started road cycling I set my goal to 175 miles, significantly less than most of the other members. It really gave me a sense of camaraderie and pushed me to not let the team down. Of course what I got out was great exercise, scenic rides and new friends.
Also today DH put clipless pedals on my bike, first I practiced with the bike on the trainer before heading out on the ride. Made the first stop sign without any problem, but when we stopped for water; left foot ok, right foot ....you know the rest. I tumbled over at least it was the right side so I went into the grassy yet thorny spot. Skinned the left shin, a couple of thorns in the fingers and bruised my ego....of course 2 cars came by right then too.
So at least I got the first tumble out of the way. The bike was spared the indignity of any scratches. Keep on pedaling!
