Today I decided I will not live in a bubble any longer and Eliquis (my anti-coagulant) was NOT going to keep me off the bike! A friendly nudge from 4-A-HEALTHY-BMI pointed me in the direction of this blog:
While I know there are bike club members on anti-coagulants who ride and it's been in the back of my mind if the anti-coagulant was going to be long term that I may just have to buck up and ride anyway, this blog sorta tipped the scales finally to help me say: ENOUGH! Get on the BIKE! My new Brooks Flyer Saddle is long, LONG overdue to get broken in...although I'm not sure which got broken, the saddle or my backside...lol! Actually I rode it "okay"...Brooks' leather saddles are notorious for requiring months of riding before they conform nicely to one's bottom and morph into the best saddle you can ride.
So I tossed a towel in my pannier, grabbed my iPhone & RoadID and off I went! Been a long, long time since last fall...kinda wobbly like Bambi's first steps for a few RPMs, but reclaimed the road very nicely with an easy-peasey 20 mile ride up to Whitney Point and back. Gorgeous day, soaking up the sun, smiling and even singing out loud along the way, reprising that Stevie Wonder song that's been stuck on my brain mentioned in my last blog: I Love Every Little Thing About You...lovin' my bike, lovin' the day, lovin' the world!
Keep 'er Sparkin' everyone!
