I'm signed up to ride in the "Little Red" bike race north of Logan on June 5th. My mom signed up all the girls in the family to do it, which should be really fun. But I had a small realization just the other day-
It hit me that the race is just over two weeks away, and I've not gone on a single bike ride this season!! To start, I don't even own a road bike of my own. I was planning on just training with my mountain bike, then ride my dad's road bike in the race. But going for a nice long ride every few days is tough when you've got a ten month old baby at home and a husband with the craziest schedule in the world! So that's how I got to this point- two weeks to the race, and not a day of training under my belt.
So Lester and I went for a little ride the other day. She used her bike and I took my mom's. My first task was to learn how to click-in to the pedals (those of you who bike know what I'm talking about). It's not as easy as it seems at first to get the hang of! The thought of taking a nasty spill while still stuck to my bike stayed in the back of my mind the entire ride. Needless to say, I never fell but figured it out pretty quickly and Les and I had a great ride! We biked only about thirteen miles, but had a blast. I'm totally hooked and as soon as I get the moolah, I'm buying a bike of my own. Bring on the race!!
