I've been meaning to get more exercise lately. I've put on some weight over the past 2-3 years and its definitely past time to get rid of it! Now that we're in the "country", there are a ton of roads near us that are great for biking. Depending upon which direction I head out of our rental house, I can get a different type of workout.
South -- fairly flat, but with a few small hills
East/West - pretty flat, but some small, long distance rises
North -- LOTS of hills!
While out last weekend, we decided to get bikes. Below is the picture of my new bike. :-)
We had to order the bike for R. since they didn't have his size at the store. We were still able to get a sale price on it though.
So far, I've ridden pretty much every day since Saturday. I didn't ride on Monday since it was a really busy day with chores and stuff around the house and I didn't ride last night as I got home late from work and we needed to go look at the lot.
Tonight, I plan on a nice long ride. Its windy today, but its much cooler (the high is only 62). I think it will be good weather for a nice ride after work. :-)
