Last month I bought a new back wheel for my bicycle so that I could start getting exercise again. The same exact day, Chips deceased cousins girlfriend bought a vintage 10-speed road bike because I told her I was getting my new wheel and that if she had a bike we could go bike riding together. We rode exactly 2 times together last month. I didn’t ride on my own though.
This month we rode once, yesterday and I told her that if this is going to work we are going to have to do this more often, like every day at least. Since we are both out of shape then perhaps every other day until our leg muscles are more used to it.
I spent a long time figuring out the perfect route for bike riding and unfortunately she doesn’t like my route because it’s the same thing every time and she likes to take short cuts, which defeats the purpose of the ride. My route has no heavy traffic to cross, all neighborhoods and when we are on the busy roads they have bike lanes. I pride myself on my organization skills whether anyone likes it or not, typically nobody likes it but me.
My cell phone hasn’t worked in years and I really need to keep a cell phone with me at all times when I’m out on the bike trail so I bought a refurbished Samsung T401G from Net10 which is the same exact phone Darrin has, only I paid $25 for mine since it was refurbished and it comes with a $25 phone card. Basically I got the phone for free hehe. But it’s a very nice phone compared to what I would have gotten had I gotten the cheaper phone if I had gone to Sears to buy it today.
Even though we are going to ride every other day, I am going to ride every day if I can (as soon as my new phone arrives) because I have more weight to lose than she does and I am determined to lose it.
I will be suggesting an alternate route for her which is her car. We were crossing such heavy traffic yesterday and it really freaked me out so if she wants to do this she can drive her bike there and I can meet her on the trail. I think that is a good plan. I get more exercise and she gets the amount of exercise she is satisfied with, it’s a win win for everyone involved.
