I Rode a Bike Today

I rode today, and it wasn’t on the stationary trainer.

It wasn’t my road bike either, but it was great.  I rode outside with my children.

I took the cruiser out for a spin with the girls. I pulled the bike around to the front of the house and put the kick stand down. I called Katerina over and asked her what she saw. Her eyes got big and she got excited. Then Sophia came over. She got so excited!

That is when I had a little problem; one bike, one child’s seat and two excited little girls.  Ultimately, I talked Katerina into riding her tricycle while I followed her with Sophia on the bike.  We just went around the block a couple of times.  It was a lot of fun.

I felt pretty good too.  I wasn’t as weak as I thought I would be.  There wasn’t as much pain as I thought I would have, but I did have some pain.  It took a little while to get some of the base bike-handling back, but like they say, you don’t forget how to ride a bike.

I don’t think I am ready to go for a real ride again, but I think I am pretty close.  Maybe a few trips to the park first.
