I've been going to spin class once or twice a week since then, but if I'm going to do any triathlons this summer I'm going to actually have to ride my bike at some point. Waiting until race day is probably not a good idea.
So with the sun shining and temperatures in the 60s, I decided yesterday would be the day. I dug out my cycling capris, dusted of my helmet, and pumped up my tires. I then told my husband to keep his cell phone handy in case I needed him to come pick me up somewhere if I got a flat! All bases were covered.
I headed out to the trail and just started going. I told myself that in the entire time I've had my bike, I've only ever had two flat tires so the odds were pretty good I would not get one today. It was the perfect day for a ride - sunny, not too much wind. And I was so happy! It was like getting together with an old friend you haven't seen in a long time.
And with daylight saving time less than two weeks away, I see some post-work bike rides in my future!
