1st ride of the year

Post by Pam » Sat Apr 27, 2013 12:33 am

The sun finally took the snow banks and drifts away enough that I was able to wiggle the bike out of the shed and onto the dry road. It has been almost a year since I have been on two wheels (back surgery ) and I was a bit worried if I could handle the bike. It didn't take to long the confidence to come back and the rust to slip away. Only about fifty miles but what a blast :D

Great that you were able to get out and ride again. I was more fearful and had given up the bike after my back fusion surgery. About 5 years passed and a friend of mine kept coming over on his bike asking me if I wanted to take it for a ride. I kept saying NO...I really wanted to but was afraid something would happen. One day I finely said yes. 2 days later I was looking for a bike. Havn't looked back and have logged about 60k miles since then (over a 6.5 yr period. Actually most of those in the last 4 yrs after I retired. Wish I hadn't wasted the years I wasn't riding. I really missed it.
