Early birthday present makes Butt hurt
Haha! Hows that for an attention getting headline?
Now, all you dirty minded persons out there - you see from the pic that I mean Ive got 'bike butt'. Its only been 23 years since I rode a bike, 17 for The Most DH, he got one too!
Yep, 23 years since my Japanese Aluminium Racing bike was stolen. It was a Kabuki, and I loved it like a dear friend. I still do a double take when I see an orange metal-flake coloured racing bike go by. I used to literally fly all over my hometown - and well beyond - spending entire days in the saddle.
Its true, you never forget how to ride a bike. But you do forget how much its going to hurt the parts you sit on! Funny, that. Only one thing for it, keep riding and it will all come good.
While our butts build tolerance (and my quads stop turning to jelly) we are just sticking to the neighborhood. Eventually, we are going to have wonderful days on trails in National Parks and anywhere around the countryside. A backpack with the camera and a picnic lunch - and we're off!
We are making a committment to riding these bikes daily and getting our fitness back. Its not all going to be fun, but we are determined. Do you need to make a similar change? You can if you want to! Get determined, and keep at it no matter how much your butt hurts in the process.
This is my 100th post on Blogger!
To celebrate, Im getting on my bike!
