Holy crap, it is/was so freakin’ nice out. Usually I spend Sundays recovering from drinking/eating/running too much on Saturday. But I HAD to get outside today.
Dusted off my whip. Seriously. It was dusty. Pumped up the tires. First time this year I got to hop on for a ride.
Yea, I didn’t notice the wind when I set out on my journey. I just wanted to get to the library and back. Quickie bike ride. That’s it.
There was so many people on the greenbelt. But I hate, hate riding down Vista on my bike. Hate it. So I was left going a little slower on the bike then I wanted. But it’s ok. First bike ride of the year.
I also hate going UP Protest. That hill always leaves me gasping for air. I thought that with all the running, my quads were stronger to make it up easier but I guess I still have work to do. But I don’t think that I will ever love biking up hills.
Somehow, my Garmin said that my max speed was 151 MPH. I KNOW even flying DOWN Protest hill, I would never, ever go that fast. Silly Garmin.
I usually wear a pair of padded bike shorts to protect my girl parts while riding. Nearly ever ride. I need a new pair. The chamois of my pair are not very padded anymore and my nice bike leggings are, well, full leg. So this year, I need to break down & get a new pair. 6 miles was about my biking threshold.
I also need new shades. My regular shades don’t protect from the wind very well & I had tears down my face going down Protest. Not safe.
Now, time for fooding with the fam while watching Basketball.
Do you use your bike to do errands?
