I Feel the Need to Ride Again!
Thursday, April 15, 2010
Did you know that I learned to ride a bike when I was about 3 or 4 years old?! I remember my cousin guiding me about half way and I told him to stop pushing me but when I looked at my back no one was there so I was literally on my own at a very young age. I did fall down at the end of the road but what made me mention that is because I really miss riding my bike. I was really small when I started and the hobby continued when I was in high school. I got into it competitively but I guess it was not really for me. I didn't win small competitions because there were still some kids better than me. I wish there was some way I could get back into riding again and form the symptoms of my gadget acquisition syndrome for dirt bike accessories. That would really be expensive since lighter, tougher bikes are getting to be the trend today.
It is another healthy alternative to my gym routine. I am trying to get another one so I would not be too acquainted with what I am doing now. The change would make me eagerly work out more but I think it is going to be a huge mistake if I often go out and eat or drink with buddies right after my shift. I am sometimes dead tired too but if I want to make this work I need to make necessary adjustments to my lifestyle right?! I need a trip to the bike shop and probably check out a few things in sites like BTO Sports to get ideas how to jazz up my gear! Wish me luck and cross your fingers as I try riding this weekend.
