I'm a wimp. No kidding.
One of the few things I am allowed to do with The Shin (not the shin that actually hurts. Nope...the shin that doesn't hurt at all and apparently has a SF...I'm a bleeping freak of nature), is cycling. And since I had already been looking for a bicycle for a couple of months now, this seemed the perfect time to get that plan going. So I did. I found Trixie last Saturday ( - yeah, I named my bike Trixie. Get over it.). [no worries, I will properly introduce her to you soon!] And went out for my first ride on Trixie yesterday (51.5K of hills) and for another ride today (48K of hills). And loved every minute of both of these rides.
However, I carefully avoided all the 'might be slippery' bits of the road today. Why? Because I'm a wimp. I'm afraid I'll crash and break something all the time (then again, apparently I don't need to actually crash to break something...). Okay...and it might have something to do with me spending several hours on YouTube last night, searching for 'how not to crash on a bicycle'. Guess what came up in the results? Correct, lots and lots of clips of crashes. After watching this one, I'm ready to wrap myself in bubble wrap.... That wouldn't be weird, right? Right?
Any advice on this one? ;) (And nope 'stop spending several hours on YouTube' won't help. ;))
