Like Riding a Bike

It has been a LONG while since I’ve been out for a bike ride.  The weather has been gorgeous and I have been wanting to get out on my bike so badly!  Wednesday morning, I put air in my mom’s tire and was so sad not be heading out for a bike ride with her.  However, my road bike has a flat, and I have not had time to take it into the shop.  SO SAD!!!

Yesterday, I was exhausted and when I finally made it home from work, I crashed.  But I decided that I would get up this morning and take my Hybrid for a ride.  Although the idea of getting my bike all set up in the morning sounded daunting, I REALLY wanted to get out and ride!  My alarm went off this morning, and I went to wake up my bike.

Since it’s been a while since my last ride, I had to dust off a few cobwebs, and my tires definitely needed some air.

I collected my gear and headed to the path on this crisp and sunny morning.  Perfect biking weather!!!

I biked around the loop, 9.5 miles.  I felt a little shaky at first, but by the time I made it to the path, I felt comfortable and began to enjoy the steam coming off of the lake and the birds dancing in the trees.  Since I hadn’t been out on my bike in awhile (and didn’t spin this winter), I was nervous about my first ride.  But like the old saying goes, it was easy to get back  ‘it’s just like riding a bike’.  By the time I got home, I was in a great mood and excited for spring/summer biking season.  Bike the Drive…here I come!

Before work, I fueled up with Overnight Oats in a Jar.

I have never made OIAJ with Almond Butter before, and I must say it was pretty amazing!

It was a filling breakfast, and I almost licked the jar clean!

I just have one more day until the weekend, when I can hopefully take my road bike in for a check up and take my Hybrid out for another beautiful ride!  I love spring!!!

 

 

Have you been out for your first bike ride of the season yet?

  1. Yes, 3 rides, thanks to the air in my tires from DD… and I have already fallen off my bike… I am not sure I like bike clips… it makes you and your bike one.. and that is not always so good!
