Biking At The Beach And at Home
I have been biking everyday from 7th to 59th street on my $65 K-Mart 10 speed. Love the exercise and flatness at the beach, and I feel like I am riding at a respectable pace. But the Schwinns consistently cruise right past me. I have always wanted to be a part of that biking group, with the cute matching outfits and fancy bikes. Right before we left for vacation we were at a party and some members of the local biking club were there. Everyone of them was very fit. I was pumping them for all kinds of information. Where do you go? When do you go? Are there women in your group? How do you train? They were very happy to have an interested audience and were sometimes raising their voices over who could answer first. Then I asked, "Well, what happens if I couldn't make it the whole way?" Total confusion by this question, and silence. Finally, one of the guys speaks up, "That is not an option." Guess my $65 Kmart bike is not making the cut anywhere!
