First Bike Ride in a Long Time

First Bike Ride in a Long Time

It’s been a while since I’d been on a bicycle. I bought one shortly after moving to Austin in 2014, and I rode it a few times, but it then sat in my garage, as bikes can do from time to time.

As with any regimen to get healthy, exercise is a vital part of success, as is eating right and making better choices. I decided to get my bike out from the garage today, and get it looked at down at the bike shop since the tires had gone flat and it could use a little TLC.

I was in and out in less than 20 minutes at the bike shop, so I decided to take it out for a little ride at a park near my apartment. I didn’t overdo it, but I have a good idea for a benchmark to hit for the next few rides. I’ll work my way up to riding longer, and faster, but for today I was very happy with what I did. I don’t know the exact distance, probably half a mile or so. I felt good afterwards, though, and I guess that’s the best part.

I had one of my little action cams with me, so I made a little video. Why not, right?
