|Sally in 2010 |
(It is not quite that green here yet, but it is getting close!)

As you can see from the map of my ride, it was only about 3 miles. The maps says 2.8, but I do not have the start and end points at their exact locations and I actually rode through Woodview Park (Google does not recognize that there is a road there). So I am rounding up to 3 miles. I am sad to say that I was very winded by the ride. Hopefully one of the benefits of this month will be getting my lungs and heart a bit stronger. (It would also be nice to be able to bike up some of the hills I had trouble with today by then too.)
I do have one other issue I must get fixed: my front brakes are broken. Sally is a 3-speed so she has brakes on the pedals, but that front brake is pretty important too! This afternoon Rodney and I are going to go get a brake. I don’t think it will be too hard to install. I am also going to have Rodney fill my tires at some place with free air. I suppose I should look at getting a helmet too… Then I will really be all set to ride and ride!
