I started riding on Hubby's bike and soon discovered that I needed one of my own. One that I was comfortable on. It would also promote family bike rides together since every member of the family would have a bike at that point. I searched high and low for a new bike. Do you remember this one?
For Christmas I received a brand new bicycle from Hubby and my in-laws. It has the big seat for us apple bottom ladies (which I love). I still haven't gotten used to the pain my naughty bits go through, but it's getting better.
Today I went for my very first 3 mile bike ride and I felt fabulous! Sure, I was panting at the hills and had some major boob sweat going on, but for the most part I felt carefree with the wind in my face. More importantly, I'm proud that I have kept a promise to myself. In October I said that I wouldn't give up on bike riding and I'm still here pedaling along. I can last more than 15 minutes now and the burning sensation in my legs are more of a welcome feeling.
Call that talent! Riding a bike AND taking a self portrait. I know! I know! Save the applause.
And for some reason the scenery always looks better when you aren't looking at it through a car window. I never realized how beautiful some of our neighborhood really is. (Bringing my camera was a great excuse to stop and rest every once in awhile!)
