I got on my bike for the first time all season today. I didn’t want it to be a long ride, just to get my ass used to the saddle again and explore a little bit about our new neighborhood (Vista Ridge, Erie).
Let me say that while my crotch is sore for not-fun reasons, Erie is a fabulous place to ride. I went about 14 miles in about 35 minutes, on a paved road with little to no traffic, rolling hills, huge cottonwoods, the late afternoon sun, and miles and miles of farmland with the mountains as a backdrop.
I just felt the need to say thank you to the world for the great day today.
