This weekend, in between bouts of rain, Jesse and I rode bikes. I have not rode a "real" bike in 4 or 5 years. However, I have made it a point to attend Spin class at my gym on a weekly basis for the past 2 years. Riding outside and riding a stationary bike are very different things, my friends. At first, I was amazed at what an effort it was to maintain balance. However, it was, as they say, like riding a bike! Some part of my memory revived and we were off! As we cruised around his neighborhood, I felt a giddy sense of enjoyment that biking used to bring when I was little. I wondered:
- How would it be possible for someone to be on a bike and be in a bad mood? I couldn't NOT smile!
- Why don't more people use this as transportation? (Around here, anyway. I know that other parts of the world are more bike-friendly.)
- When can I go again?
Wheeee! What is a fun activity that you have discovered/rediscovered recently?
