I have been too busy to ride my bike and my riding buddies have had a busy schedule too. So, it has been several weeks since I rode. Today was a perfect day to ride , so when I visited Bob, I took my bike along in the back seat. Let me tell you,
your muscles do forget , quickly. I was really happy to get back to the car after I did my ride. I pretended that I was just sitting on the bumper, but really, I was catching my breath before I labored to get the bike in the back of the van. Some woman felt
my pain and she came over to help me. There would have been a time when I would have said that it was Ok and that could do it myself, but not today. The morale of this story is that you can't stop riding for about 7 weeks and then just jump on your bike
and take a long ride. I came home and took a nap.
