Cycling is a Gateway Drug?
When I bought my bike I was only looking to get out of the house for a while, ride to a couple of nearby parks and chill out. Now I ride by the parks and chill out on my bike. Soon that wasn't enough and I began to look for longer routes and then I began hunting the hills. Next thing I know, my knobby knees were being consumed by what appeared to be muscle!? I know, it's crazy.
I didn't like the idea of looking like a bird cage mounted on a pair of chicken legs, so I went out and bought some other exercise equipment (dumbbells, weight bench, etc...). Now I'm working out every other day, doing the core routine of bench presses, squats, curls, and several others that turn my narrow frame into a quivering sweat-logged mess. It's great. I'll never be a hulk but it's nice to see what muscle I have taking form.
Now, like most dope fiends, I find myself encouraging my friends to give it a try. "Come on man, everyone's doing it. You've never been high like this. You won't get hooked." I was talking to a friend of mine yesterday who owns the local bar and he expressed interest in giving it a try, but then went on to add that he might not have time to get away from the club long enough to do it. So I told him I'd drag all of my stuff to him and we could work out together.
We start Thursday. SUCKER
