What I Have Learned

Since buying our bikes in late May, I have learned a few things:

  • I love riding my bike
  • Riding is great exercise
  • Eventually the behind does get used to the seat
  • Sometimes I feel like I could ride for hours
  • Sometimes a short ride is plenty
  • I enjoy riding with my family
  • I enjoy riding alone
  • Getting more exercise does not equal weight loss (very discouraging)
  • Long, slow inclines are more tiring than short, steep hills
  • Even riding on hot evenings are tolerable with the wind in your face
  • Did I mention, I love riding my bike

Here are my totals for the month of July - over 100 miles for the month.  If you had told me when we bought the bikes that I would ride that much, I would have never believed you. Can't wait to see what August brings.

Do you remember when we used to take our bikes over to the park on this side of the river?

Yes I do remember that.
