hubby has a lot of back knee and feet issues and has been told he needs excercise so a friend of ours surprized us by buying new bikes...

we broke them in on the bike trails at our park yesterday 3 MILES OMG I made it I was so happy when I saw the back of our blazer at the end of the trail I can't believe how out of shape I felt through that whole ride... hadn't been on a bike since my teens but it's easier on his body than walking would be.... it was sooooo much fun though and our little one just jabbered away and had a blast in the kid trailer behind hubbys bike I can't wait to do it again ... it sooo needs to warm up....

my bottom hurts though from the bike seat I need one of the wide ones i think anyone know if my bottom will ever get used to it lol

3 miles WOOOHOOO so happy

hey! that's wonderful! I've been wanting to get into bike riding, they recently opened a new bike store near my gym. I stare inside longingly, ha! what a good friend!

yeah!!! re warming up! we had a gigantic snow dump yesterday, I was walking up the street to the subway through snow drifts up to my knees (!!!). What weather, I feel like I've been transported to Siberia. I really can't wait for spring!!

Wow this is something I want to do! I want to get a tandem bike for dh and I! I think it would be a blast! I remember as an older kid how my hind end would hurt in spring when we first started riding bikes again...holy cow...after all these years I am going to need numbing spray!

cathy -- It really did make me feel like a kid again exspecially after the ugly grays we get during the winter was nice to get out... cabin fever GO AWAY YAY.. hubby says they make a seat for wide bottom gals... ((he said it lovingly though)) and he'd pick me one up maybe that will help

dragon -- we got a couple of really nice schwinns from the local walmart ... O i wish we had had a decent snow this year all we got was muck really maybe one day of 3 inches that melted promtply ... was icky and no fun...
