The two posts today are dedicated to the Canadian Preacher who encouraged me to get on my bike and ride. So I did it.
First I had to dig the old bike out of the garage. Both tires were flat...so I loaded up and went to the corner gas station and filled the tires. The picture above is the sidewalk in my neighborhood. The first part of the ride was peaceful. Then I turned to go out of our neighborhood....
I chose the four lane boulevard with heavy traffic for my first ride. I almost died! Good thing my ending destination was the cemetery near our house. It is a beautiful setting....thought if this bike idea killed me I would end my ride in the right spot.
It is amazing what one sees when on a bike. I had no idea we had a creek near us!
I only attempted four miles.
It was all I could handle.
We don't live in steep hills....but the constant slopes of the roads were more than I expected.
So here's to my first ride!
