Things I had forgotten in the 4 months since I last rode my bike.    1 comment

In the four months since I last got onto a bike (the longest span that I have gone without riding in YEARS!), I had completely forgotten:

1) always keep an extra helmet in the car, just in case you forget yours. 
2) always have a little extra food and water

3) it is really important to keep your lady bits well groomed

4) anti-chafe stuff is really important. ESPECIALLY if you have forgotten #3

5) however many layers you have on when it’s cold and windy out, add one more. 

6) half of riding is really convincing yourself to keep going when you really want to stop.  

7) your butt bones are really sensitive on that saddle. 

8) Windproof gloves are worth every penny when the weather sucks. 

9) windburn hurts just as badly as sunburn

10) I really do LOVE LOVE LOVE riding my bike!

  1. I fear my first bike ride. My legs & my heart will scream “More miles! More miles!” while my contact patch will be screaming, “Get me off this thing or you all die!”
