First time went to work with my bike

Hello everyone,

For first I want tell you that I buy bike 3 days ago and I crashed on first day and hurt my arm. But it's nothing and now all is good. More important that bike is okay .




And on next day I didn't went out with bike because I physically couldn't rule it. So I was sitting and waited for my hour.




The next day it was Sunday I felt that arm is fine and maybe I can rule it. So I took bike and went to park for have cycling which I want more times. I had wonderful day. I cycled 6 hours. Yes my legs was not agree with me but after they also felt itself good .




Yes of course I had relax between cycling and ate some food in park, lay a little. The next day I should been go to work and I thought go on bike or no. I think you already understand that I went on bike




I waked up on morning had some breakfast and went on bike to workplace. On the middle way I tired and walk bit after again I jumped on bike and continue my path.At work I remembered that I didn't used my mobile application in morning which I downloaded for analyze data on time cycling( because those interest for me). So After work I enable application and with smile cycling to home. I'm very happy that I can share it with you.

Bicycle Storage at work
I biked a part way to work too. Yesterday, the temperatures were cooler, figured it's a good time to bike to work. I enjoyed the bike trail. My bicycle pattern seems to be every other day. I want to get an ebike next year and start commuting to work. I am waiting for a bicycle rack to be installed by the HOA near my home. My bike is the beach cruiser.

Well done David. I'm retired so no need to commute but I live in a small town that is bike friendly. I ride everywhere such as grocery shopping, post office, library and whatever needs doing in town or nearby. Cycling is a wonderful activity you will be able to do for the rest of your life.

Welcome David! I also ride to work most days. On the days that I donít ride I donít feel right all day.

where are you riding at? Country of origin for cycling? Mountainous or supine?

Strange. I rode to work through downtown, 9 miles on the roads with cars, and had no problems today. Again. Been doing that for some 15 years.

Uncorrect.

And I am curious as to why you would make that statement shortly after starting a thread asking if you should ride to work in a metropolitan area that is heavily car-dependent. Things that make you go "Hmmmmm?"

I rode in this morning too. There was traffic on all of the roads but nothing too extreme. When I leave this afternoon, I'll be embedded in the middle of cars. Luckily in the worst areas I can keep up with the flow of traffic.

Hi David,

First, glad you are healed. Your English is good and very understandable, but with one strange word use. I think by "rule" you mean "steer". The President or Prime Minister or King rules a country. We control which way a bike goes by steering it. One can steer right, or steer left. Interestingly perhaps, a ruler can steer a country left or right, but a bicyclist would not talk of ruling a bike right or left.

The use is nearly understandable but is not common.

Please add your location. It's nice to know where people are from.

Welcome to the forum!

Where do you park your bicycle?

At this office I lock it to a covered bike rack. At previous locations I've locked it to a bike rack without a roof (but added a cover if it looked like rain), or parked it in my office. Only problems I've had have been slow leaks leading to flat tires when I come out to ride home, but those are uncommon IME.

Honest error due to translation or troll, I don't care which.
Not being able to physically rule the bike is a fantastic description.
