The Challenge is Afoot

Sunday, May 19, 2013

Today I started my bike-all-the-city-streets challenge. I had wanted to do it last year so I could say I did it before I turned 60. But, it didn't happen. I got a lot done but not all the streets.

This year I am starting more than a month early and, assuming I'm successful, I will have accomplished it when I am 60.

Today I did a section not too far from our house but one I didn't get to last year. I am smarter about the streets this year. Last year I found myself redoing streets because where I live doesn't change and I really only have access to my house going west and south.

My surgery foot was tired after biking (today was only 35 minutes) but I did okay. I was a bit worried because I don't have hand brakes and I wasn't sure my foot could handle a sudden stop but the one I had to do today went fine. Apparently worried about being hit by a car fires different neurons than worried about just one part of me. My stamina needs work so these first few outings will be shorter than later ones.
