I have been in hog heaven these past two days. It’s been absolutely gorgeous outside, and I have been taking advantage of it. For two days I have had my bicycle out, and even riding it!
It has been, probably, more than two years since I have actually ridden my bike. It has been in my mother’s garage for most of that time. It’s great to have it out, and have it working! I had to buy some new parts, like a new shifting cable, and some grips (because the old ones had to be cut off). Now it’s up to snuff again! I have forgotten how much I enjoy riding!
Today I may have overdone it a little, though. The temperature was fairly warm (some weather forecasters say it got to 77 degrees!), but there was a cool wind blowing. Well, stupid guy that I am, I never put on any sunblock. I am reeling from the effects of the sun, for sure. I guess there is nothing like the first sunburn of the nice weather season!
That and I am so out-of-shape. My legs are killing me, right now. Walking up the stairs is a chore, my knees protest the entire way up. Tomorrow morning they should be shipshape again, though. At least I hope so, anyway.
Tomorrow it is supposed to be even nicer than today, or so I hear. A high in the 80s is nice, in theory. I say “in theory” because if there is no wind to cool us down, it might be hot. And I am not one for the heat. We’ll see…
