Since I'm now retired I ride for pleasure a lot, especially on the West side. I like riding in rural pasture land---I love the smell of cow shit in the morning! It smells like cycling.
Since I am, and always will be, an intermediate rider, a perfect ride for me is 25-35 miles @ 12-15 mph. Because I'm a Triple A Rider ( Arthritic, Asthmatic & Aged) I'm a slug on hills (especially now that I ride a trike rather than a DF bike) but I'm not afraid of them and I will make it to the top one way or another even if I have to walk part way. There is no shame in walking your bike, as long as nobody sees you.
Rain or shine but if it's over 50% chance of rain AND there's a nasty headwind, I'll consider going to the gym instead or settling in with a good book.
I'd better. I wrote it.
I already BE one.
Retired lawyer, mostly retired corporate and personal chef, Dad to three and husband to Judith, the love of my life, but she says my trike's my mistress. I have two mottoes: I ride for pleasure, not for pain & Get out of my f***ing kitchen!
It don't get no beddah dan dis!
