So I have this wonderful bike in my room. It's hooked up to a trainer so that I could ride it through the winter without having to go out into the weather. The last time I rode it wasn't this past winter. It was the winter before. I rode it so much on that trainer, I wore the back tire completely down to the threads.
Then it sat for a year and a half. As my own ... errrm ... "seat" ... grew wider!
As the weather is warming up, I am feeling the desire to get back out on my bike. I need to take it into the shop to get a new back tire and to make sure everything's safe for road riding. The shop I take it to is about an hour away.
See where I'm going with this? I see myself tempted to make excuses to NOT get my bike tended to and back out on the road! We've got a beautiful weekend coming up ... and I don't believe my kids have any plans for me. I should load my bike up on my car and take a country drive to drop my bike off to be fixed up.
Yes, that is what I'll be doing this weekend, I do believe!!
I'm holding myself accountable!! Now!!
