I Want to Ride My Bicycle

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.
