new bicycle

Thursday, June 28, 2012

since walking is a problem for me and the treadmill is out, I decided to buy an adult tricycle. I love being outside and have found a nice place to ride along the river. There is not much traffic, and I have mapped out a level mile and a half ride. transporting the bike has been a problem as my husband has to take it in the trailer he hauls behind his truck which has the only trailer hitch. any suggestions would be much appreciated. I've used it twice and i love it. love the feeling of the wind in my hair and the delight of freedom of movement. no gears so it's all work. have done 3 miles in one trip each time with no after discomfort at all.


the road we live on is very dangerous, so hubby transports me to a side road near the house. I take in small plastic baggie, emergency card, phone, meds, eye drops. Then I take a hat, sun glasses, water bottle and umbrella. Unfortunately, husband is not always around when I want to go, but go as often as I can. At 3 miles right now, that is doing the route twice. Hoping to build it up to more.


still riding bike, 3 times a week, hoping to build it up to more. early in morning has been working out best. no weight loss yet, but building up strength, and stamina. I do feel better.


thank you for all the support, wish it was that easy. Unfortunately transport has become a problem, now my husband has put it down cellar where I can't get it. I was riding around the yard some, I thought better than nothing. But none now. I have located a cargo carrier with ramp that I can put on the back of my car with a trailer hitch, need to check dimensions and order it. But all this takes time and I am so discouraged. I really loved riding it. So I keep trying. I'm not the kind of person that gives up too easily. Where there is a will there is a way.

    ANY exercise you can get is beneficial!! Just keep riding!! Even if you need to ride in a small neighborhood, you can go around multiple times and keep track by time rather than distance. Keep at it and you will be surprised how much better you will feel!! Jo
