Out for a Spin

Well today, we took the bikes out for a ride. I didn’t think to bring along the camera for the ride, but I did get a pic of how the bikes are set up on the CRV. We headed up to South Kent and took a 5.5 mile ride down a road that runs along the river. It’s mostly dirt and has some paths to go explore along the edges of the woods. The hills didn’t appear bad, and by car they don’t seem bad but by bike, they were enough to get my heart pumping out of my chest. I thought my legs were going to fall off at one point. I should preface this with, I’m extremely out of shape, pretty overweight, and haven’t riden seriously since I was about 14. Oh yeah and I don’t exercise regularly. So…today was a big accomplishment for me, and I’m looking forward to many more days like this and enjoying the bikes.
