Once you start cycling, the city opens up for you. No longer are you fighting it, hot and frustrated; no longer are you at the mercy of bus drivers, roadworks, decisions made by others and over which you have no control. Believe me, once you've tasted this freedom, you're hooked. Deborah Moggach

28..406am..ggoood sunday morning..the quote i put up there today reminds me of myself..4 years ago when i first started riding a bike again..soon as i started riding i was hooked..now 4 years later..i have an indoor set up using a cannondale road bike set up on a kinetic smart trainer..just so i can get my rides inside thru the winter time..an a trek emonda carbon for riding outside in the cold or the sun..depending on how bad i want to brave the cold that day..

the thing i most enjoy about riding and even walking..i dont look at either one as exercise..even though they both are..i enjoy them both enough that its just a way to get out an enjoy the outside..see the people that you encounter on your trip around town or giving the dogs that arent tied up..their morning exercise..not only do you get a sprint done on your bike..but you see just how fast you can peddle from a year ago..

todays plan is to get on trainer and get a ride in..not sure if im gonna do a hill program on zwift or just a ride..really an truely..at the moment dont even care if i ride..but usually on a sunday i get a ride in depending on how i feel that day..having 101 miles in for the week this week..its extra miles to add on for the month..which i am behind on ..so hopefully il get riding clothes on shortly an get a ride/workout in..

weather here next week is suppose to be nicer..but rainy..might get several days of outdoor rides in..just have to watch the weather channel an see if i can get dressed an on bike before i get soaked..hate leaving in the rain..but getting caught in the rain..not so bad..just makes you ride faster to get back home..lol..

well...still fasting..coffee is done..but havnt had any yet..eyes are almost open once again..so guess its time to venture out of recliner an get this day started once again..

Interesting quote .... I believe that the world looks, feels, and even smells different on a bike versus riding in a car or walking. Freedom, i’m not so sure? My neighborhood and it’s street system is setup for cars, not bikes. As long as people are texting (or whatever) while driving ...... we bike riders have limited control. It’s a shame because it could be so much better.

Hey, Wannabe, I finally bought a trainer. Thank you for your advice. I bought a mid-range one. Very good quality, but not digital. I followed the advice of the nice guy at the local bike shop. He had to order it, so I don't have it yet. It should come in on Tuesday. I'm still recovering from the concussion and my chiropractor says that indoor biking is the best, because you can hold your head still while exercising. Any tipping and jolting gives me a headache. I've been asking you about this for over a year, so I finally took the plunge. Now I have to develop the practice of using it. New habits! Thanks for your encouragement!!
