I finally got up the courage to venture out on my bike again. The weather was perfect and I was tired of telling hubby NO- I had knee surgery last summer and was scared but I went and really enjoyed it. I was a weenie though, didn't take in all the scenery and go very far but that's okay. I'm back on it!! :D
Who likes to bike ride???

Take one day at a time. Next you'll be in a bike marathon. I use to ride a lot, but since we moved here there isn't anywhere to ride. Miss it.

I used to ride a lot. But I got hit from behind and even though I wasn't seriously hurt, I just can't bring myself to get back on!

I love to ride, dh bought me a pink cruiser, we often load them up and go to the va. beach boardwalk and ride, I think it might have been a way for him to go sight seeing, that's alright, there's alot to see.

I don't know how to ride one very well. I grew up in the country with no sidewalks or streets and never even got on one until I was 16. Got my first bike in college...panicked a little when a car came too close...jumped a curb and hit a tree. I rode it to class and work, but when I graduated, I left the bike riding behind.

I am waiting on Trike's to arrive that we ordered on Father's Day. They are low to the ground and feel like a go cart. Safter to ride in the sense if you fall it isn't so far down. I can't wait for them to come because I used to bike a lot. DH needs to do it for exercise and this may be the only way I can get him to do it. (that's my plan anyway) He is not too thrilled about it.

Sounds like you had fun. I don't ride bike. We have too many hills here. I used to ride mine to work, but I was younger then.
