Laughing at myself

Wednesday, June 04, 2014

I am a walker (and try to run.) So today was Ride Your Bike to Work Day. Along with being a walker I am a confirmed procrastinator .... at 6:00 this morning my darling hubby was explaining to me how to shift gears on my bike. I keep telling myself (and others) that I need to learn, however I never take the time. I also knew about this ride weeks in advance, but never got my bike out and used it. Wow - how about training.
So, at 6:15am I set out on my bicycle to do the three mile trek to work. Had to walk it up the first hill - that's okay, I am a walker .... Gumby legs by the time I got to work, but I did make it. Arrived in once piece. Went to get off my bike, got my foot caught in a cable and went down on my hands and knees. Laughing at myself - no blood but a huge bruise on my knee. Thanking the fact that my trip home is all downhill.

    Good luck. I learned with coaster brakes so ex bought me one with gears and hand brakes and yelled at me so much I have never gotten on again
