Well my bike finally came and I went out for my first ride. It was only a short ride (just about a mile) but I want to get a feel for the bike before I go any further. I haven't rode for about 8 years (back when I was in primary school) put I picked it up easily. Here's a disturbing picture of me on my new bike. Admittedly, I don't have the apparel yet but that comes after getting some new accessories for the bike (new pump, water bottle and what not). My aim is to go on three rides a day at about a mile each until I can build my stamina to go further. But so far, so good. I finally have a bike and i'm looking forward to using it more.
