Safety in Numbers!

Friday, August 27, 2010

This week I joined a group of bicyclers who allow me to experience new trails at last! I suppose the trails were always available, but I have been intimidated by unknown areas that lead you to isolated little spots near downtown GR or under a viaduct that seems a little creepy when you are alone. There is safety in numbers, afterall!

Anyhow, on Monday night we met for the first time and it was great exhilirating fun! Although my old bike makes a lot more noise than their new light weight bikes, I was happy to hear that they made record time on both of our rides. Yesterday's run was alittle more difficult for me because the hills are hard with my bad knees. Maybe I will be upgrading that bike sometime soon. But, it was great exercise and a beautiful ride. It would be fun to get my hubby to join us. Maybe next week!

Happy trails! -

    How wonderful for you...

    Save your $$ so you can have that new bike. You deserve it.

    Wish I lived close - that would be so much fun.

    Sound like fun, riding with a group. Great exercise, don't overdue it with those knees, but will them help in time.

    Good for you joining a group! I have yet to find something... And you are so right about safety in numbers. A friend of mine, years ago, used to ride by herself. She thinks she passed out while riding, doesn't know what really happened: scarey! All she remembered was some guy was picking her up off the road, and took her to the hospital. She was lucky!
    Thanks for sharing your story: Keep up the great work (exercise).
    Have a wonderful weekend!
