Above: the Bike Diva and her boyfriend "working out"
I think I forgot how to ride a bike I haven't been on one in so long. My only workouts for the past year have mostly been running.
I've undergone a lot of changes since December 29, 2011. I've gone through a divorce, moved out of my house, to a new town, got a new job, changed jobs, got laid off from that job and am now unemployed right before the holiday season.
Anyways, biking wasn't part of my life in 2012. I still own three bikes but am not sure how much use they will get. I brought my Felt Breed single speed cyclocross bike out to my boyfriends house. He lives in Loxahatchee, Florida on a dirt road, surrounded by more dirt roads so my road bike and triathlon bike are a bit of overkill out here.
He has a 900 pound mountain-ish type of bike and really isn't into biking. I am trying to either:
A. Coerce him into riding his bike.
B. Get him a better bike so he can keep up with me.
The last time I went out on my cyclocross bike I was chased by a large stray dog that smacked right into my bike. Luckily, I am an okay biker and managed to stay upright and not fall down in front of the minivan that was behind me. I also managed not to get mauled by the dog, but it kind of took the fun out of that workout.
Anyways, hopefully the new year will bring some new motivation to get back on my bike.
