thats great! i started riding about 2 months ago to get ready for the rona m.s. bike tour - i havent ridden a bike in 15 years no joke! my aunt is now riding she is 60 yrs and needs to lose weight to get off her diabetes meds- she is on here as well her name is leeny2- we even got my mom to ride yesterday for the first time she is about 60as well and i ahve never seen her ona bike my entire life. I was all geared up to help her learn to ride but she got on and said see you later!!! and was gone - it was great !!!! so congrats to everyone trying it out for the first time there is no looking back once your on the bike for the first time!
I just had to share that I went on my first bike ride in about 7 or so years yesterday. It was very exciting. We picked up our bikes late Saturday from REI (had ordered them online) so we didn't get to test them out until yesterday.
It was just a leisurely 4 miles, but it was a lot of fun! :D We could have gone further, but I had just some intense circuit training before hand. I wanted to use the ride as my long cool down.
Yay! I had SO much fun. I think this will be something I can really get into. :D
