Also looking forward to ...

Friday, March 21, 2014

... getting on my bike again! I bought it last year and did not ride it a whole lot but I did use it.

First thing I need to do is ride it to the dealers and get the handlebars straightened out again. For some reason they moved just off centre, which is enough to throw off my steering just a little and probably was the reason I lost my balance and fell over once (onto the grass, fortunately). I can't adjust the d*amn things at all - they are too tight! I need someone with the right tools and more muscle.

Anyway, once that is done, I'm planning to go on some rides that are a little longer than I attempted last year. I avoided hills last year as much as possible, but I can *walk* up them if necessary!

However, I am not looking forward to the sore behind, that's for sure! Though last year it wasn't as bad as I was expecting.

    Good for you for getting out there. You should look into a gel seat for the bike or some padded bike shorts. Either or both will help with the sore behind. Makes a big difference!
