Back on the saddle again!!

Last night my dad and I decided to take our bikes for a spin.  It has been so long since I have attempted to ride a bike, and the last time I tried I couldn't keep my balance and kept falling off.     I am happy to report that last night after listening to my dad instruct me on riding a bike, I successfully managed to stay on and make a couple trips around the parking lot!!!         I forgot how much fun riding a bike can be, I have taken some spinning classes at the gym and always enjoyed it, and always imagined myself participating in a cycling event,but of course I was not to sure exactly how I would stay on the bike.   Then, when I started training for marathons, my interest peaked again mainly because the area where  I run in is also very popular with cyclists.  Everytime my feet would hit the pavement and a cyclist would come by I would think ... Hmm that seems kind of fun. So here we go step 1 is in the works :re-learn how to ride a bike, Step 2: take my bike to a near by park and see how far I can go on a easy trail.  I know I have a long way to go but you got to start somewhere.


  1. good for you! i like to ride my bike, but i tend to end up where i am looking! i wrote about this in one of my earlier blogs- i actually ended up in someones yard- under the sprinklers! my husband loves to ride his bike. he takes a spin class while i take zumba- we both go to a wellness center near by. but i think that he would rather ride his bike outside. i hope that you are having a good trip! be safe.

  2. Ha Ha Bea, that sounds like something I would do!! Thanks my trip is going well, I think it's been a little harder to manage my calories here but I am trying my best. I am going to have to go back and read that post about your bike riding when I get back!! Hope you are well!
