I Want to Ride My BicyclePosted: 2012/10/16
I’ve set a few goals for myself now the the season is officially, finally, 100% over. One is to get rid of the nice roll of fat that encircles my midsection. I don’t think I’ve gained much weight, but I’m certain that things have shifted after 6 months of no cardio and no gym visits.
Last week I discovered the National Seashore trails around Clapp’s and Duck Ponds. Clapp’s is the larger of the two and a wooded dune ridge runs along its northern edge. It provides some challenging hills and spectacular scenery. It’s unbelievably peaceful and I’m motivated to know it’s there.
Today I had another great ride on Gary (my bike, a Gary Fisher mountain bike). Can’t believe I forgot about how crucial exercise is to my mental well-being. I suspect the lack of it is part of what has been a challenging season for me.
