Just had to tell you guys that I am becoming quite good at shifting my gears, I can pull my cleats in and out of the pedals and havenít fallen ďyetĒ and I believe Iíve developed a permanent grease stain on my right calf. Iím not riding too far Ė 10 miles is the max. Iíve done so far - have lots of hills, inclines in my area and Iím sooooooo out of shape. I think I've swallowed a 100 bugs while gasping for air. Have been dealing with plantar fasciitis too - what a pain that is but massage therapist and exercises are helping. Am going to look online tonight to see where I can find some flat land to ride on.
