I just bought a bike on Wednesday afternoon. It’s a “comfort” bike just right for an old chubby guy who lives about a mile from work. I rode both yesterday and today to work and plan on keeping it up, eventually adding even a bit more riding.
I used to ride a lot, doing centuries and the like, but then went through some difficulties, including several knee operations. That pretty much put an end to it.
I realized recently that I could ride a bike if I took it easy and didn’t think I had to do the 25+ miles a day thing again, so here I am!
I’ve been riding a moped back and forth to work which is a lot less expensive than a car, so saving $$$ isn’t really an issue. It’s health. I think I’ll feel better if I move a bit more. I’ve been a lump lately and I can feel it.
Now I just have to get a rack for the back to carry stuff – today’s after work chore. I think I’ll ride. :-)
