I am 55 years old. I haven't ridden in almost 40 years and then never rode much. My workplace recently became involved in National Bike Challenge. I felt compelled to give it a go, so I found a bike at a garage sale and started riding. I track my rides using MapMyRide and set a goal to ride every day. I started at a mile per day a month ago and am up to ten miles per day. My bike is a Schwinn 21 speed cruiser and is so slow that I have to pedal to go downhill!
Needless to say, I am addicted! I look forward to getting off work so I can ride!
Next step: get a better bike!
