My cycling habit started in the summer of 2010. My work schedule changed for a few weeks and so I was able to try out some new classes at the gym. I decided to try the studio cycle (spin) class. I survived the first class and felt pretty good about it. Even when my work schedule went back to normal, I decided to keep going back – but had to get up before the chickens to get to the 5am classes. Within a few months I met a Trainer/Instructor who talked about riding outdoors. Sounded intriguing but I only had a $100 wal-mart mountain bike.
Joining the Cycle Club
I went on my first road ride on that beastly mountain bike. They told me it was 15-17 miles but I about died! THAT day I began shopping for my first road bike. I ended up with a Specialized Dolce and a Specialized Sirrus (hybrid).
It’s nothing fancy, but I like it. Actually, I love it (as much as you can love “a thing”). The rest is history folks. No looking back. I’m addicted to the road rides. AND I’ve met some amazing and fun people in the cycle club. I can’t imagine not knowing them and not being friends with them. So many fun rides and so very therapeutic as well!
This is my friend and trainer Kim. She is fully responsible for my cycling habit. She probably would proudly admit it as well! 🙂
Here’s Kimberly – therapy on a bike! I love our chats on our long road rides. She is one crazy chick and so much fun!
