I love to ride the bicycle. I rode one while in St Augustine every day(beach bike ). I have not ridden my mountain bike in over a year. I was wondering why since I do love it so much. So I had to face some of my obstacles and over come them.
1. I am too fat to ride a bike I will look silly.
2. It is too hot out there.
3. My little dog will want to come too and I will hurt her feelings if I leave her here and if I take her she might get hurt.
4. I am afraid I might get hurt. Bad neighbor dogs, cars, freaks also I hurt my back really bad one time on the bike and yes I did wreck that time. etc etc....
So I said I am getting on that bike. I got it ready , got my water, got on it warmed up a bit around the drive way parking area at the top and off I go down the driveway which is about a 45 degree incline.. I exaggerate some but is pretty steep. probably 25 degrees. I made it safely down with my dog right behind me. Dear me there is the other one too ...she is old and does not usually want to come.... but away we all 3 went. I rode up and down the hills a couple of time and off I go towards the river and lost the dogs. I turned around to find them and saw them going back up the driveway.
I really enjoyed myself it was 40 minutes of extreme for me physical workout and joy all mixed up. If any of you don't know the difference. Beach biking and mountain biking is totally different. Push push push up the hills and wheeee down them.
