I went for my first bike ride in a LONG time Sunday. A short 10 mile outing----fun on the SIL's new bike! It was SO tempting to go out blazing, but I knew I had to be careful and definitely needed to re-learn the gears, bike safety, dismounting, etc. before pushing for a longer ride.
It is SO MUCH easier to bike than to run and you start thinking this is NO BIG DEAL-PIECE OF CAKE! AND THEN---the next morning and you remember what really gets a pounding when riding a bike.......Underneath it all---there's always soreness!
