went on my first just-for-fun bike ride tonight since I bought my new bike. Everything else has been commuting. It was a nice ride, mostly on one of the trails in Columbus. Total was 13.1 miles. I wasn't concerned with time, just the way it felt to ride. When I set out it looked like it might rain, and I was kind of hoping for it. It didn't rain during my ride, but ten minutes after my return. The ride was totally uninhibited. No backpack, no purse, no worrying about sweating on co-workers. It felt really nice to just be with my bike (I heard a rumor she was going to give me her letter jacket ).
I am considering a 20-25 mile ride this Sunday. I have ridden 20 miles total in a day before this, but not all at once.
Biking, where have you been all my life?
