I Survived – the 10 o’clock film June 15, 2012Posted by Pam in KC in Uncategorized.
A couple of weeks ago my husband and I pulled out our bicycles and took them the to car wash to knock years of accumulated dirt and dust off them. Afterwards he asked me if I remembered how to ride a bike.
I hopped up on it and the promptly fell down without gaining my balance, dragging the bike with me. My knee and elbow were scraped up pretty good and I had a nasty bruise on my elbow, but a few days of acetaminophen and a visit to the chiropractor and I was, perhaps not good as new, but at least willing to try again.
But first the bikes needed a tune up and the seat lowered!
Tonight we picked up our bikes. After dinner we found a nice flat parking lot (next to a hospital). I think I figured it out!
We didn’t ride long. I think this video is less than 60 seconds. I maybe rode for another 3 or 4 minutes. We didn’t want to over do it. This after all the first time in I know 13 years and probably closer to 20 or 25 that we’ve been on bicycles.
The forecast is for rain, so I don’t know if we’ll get out tomorrow or not.
