I may regret this in the morning

June 9th, 2014 at 04:01 am

Ever notice how things seem like a good idea at the time? We went for a long bike ride today. I've been wanting a bike for a long time. I used to ride one for pleasure years and years ago, but between moves and this and that, my bike disappeared. My parents may have sold it.

Anyway, I have wanted one and DH and I bought bikes and helmets Friday and went for our first ride together. He was worried he wouldn't remember how; he said he hadn't been on a bike for over 50 years.

Fortunately he did and no training wheels needed. No ride last night because it started raining yesterday afternoon.

My husband is a walker and everyone is asking him if he's giving it up to ride his bike, but he said no, just to add to his exercise. I have an exercise bike I have been using, but it isn't the same as riding the real thing on rises and pavement.

Could we afford them? Yes. It wasn't an impulse buy. And we think that the exercise will also be beneficial. I don't regret the purchase.

As for the morning, we may be sore and may regret the longer ride tonight.

    The nice thing about bikes is that you can cover more ground in the same amount of time as walking. You may be sore initially, but that is just your body adjusting to the new routine. Enjoy!!

    Yep, you never forget how to ride a bike! I wish I could ride, but my setting is too urban. Enjoy your biking!
