I am new to cycling, I have had a bike for about 10 years, but haven't ridden regularly..
A friend and I was walking daily and he kept asking if I have ever considered biking. I said I have been thinking about, but I first have to get a bike rack. I kept on thinking about and I finally bought a bike rack the first week of October. We rode a couple of days before my trip to South Africa and sorta got hooked. Before leaving for South Africa I book a Table Mountain Bike tour. I thought I could do that, it sounded fun. Well off to South Africa, then the day came for the Bike Tour came. I thought that is was just riding around on the mountains roads. That is how the internet made the tour sound. Man, was I wrong! It was down the gravel trails with rocks down the mountain. I just prayed to God that I would make it safely to the bottom, and I would never do that again if he let me live. Well I made it, some riding down, walking down with some. Well made it to the bottom of the mountain. I was relieved. It was fun riding the bikes back to the central bike tour office going down hills on the street. I felt like I was back in my childhood.
Well, now I ride the 'Greenline' daily in Memhis Tennessee which is an old discountinued rail line. They only have about 6.7 miles completed, so a round trip is about 14 miles. The link is http://www.traillink.com/trail/shelb...greenline.aspx
I feel guility when I do not go for a bike ride. If I can't ride in the morning, I will go for an afternoon ride,
I love the cycling app for my Iphone called MapMyBikeRide and the link is http://www.mapmyride.com/
I have signed up for the second annual 'Cranksgiving' fun ride.
