My morning ride

I’ve had a bike for about a year now. I just haven’t been riding it. This morning I decided to start!

There is a big cemetary just up the hill from our house, so I decided to make that my destination. Dead people don’t drive cars that can hit me, and since I haven’t gotten on a bike since I was a kid, best to start there until I got my “sea legs” back, you know?

It was just as I had hoped it would be, quiet and shady and peaceful. I made a playlist for my ipod but I kept it on low, since I was enjoying the lack of noise and people.

I was only out for about 25 minutes but it really woke me up and got me ready to start the day. I actually broke a decent sweat, too!

I don’t know that I will do this every day. But I do know that I really enjoyed it and it helped me survive my stressful and frustrating day today. I just had to think of this morning and how nice the breeze felt in my hair when my phone wouldn’t stop ringing and I had a huge line of residents waiting to be helped.

Calmness is the goal.

Now, where can I get a sticker for my bike that says, “My Other Ride Is Your Mother”?

  1. Hubby and I have to dust off our bikes and ride them again now that the moving craziness is done. I miss riding. Such fun!
