But Not for Me
I am too much of a wuss
I had to share this.
I love to ride my bike. One big reason is the benefits of exercise for diabetics. It’s a big must for keeping the glucose under control.
It’s also fun. Riding can be an exercise in pure, youthful joy. Once I found the type of bike that fit me best, the fun I had as kid riding renewed as an adult.
The spills, though, hurt a bit more than when I was kid. I don’t bounce as well as I used to. Gotta take the good with the bad, I guess.
As I have long admitted, I am a wuss when it comes to cold weather. I don’t like it and riding in the cold weather is an exercise of furious pedaling to get and stay warm. That’s good example of an aerobic exercise, but I wimp out and just put the bike on the trainer in the garage. Yeah it’s cold in the garage, but not as much.
Maybe someday I will get over it, but for now, the benefits of exercise I get from riding my bike will be on the trainer when the temps drop.
With my cold weather cowardice in mind, I want to share this, a bunch of guys to embrace the cold and snow and keep on riding.
They are having fun, a real slippery blast of a ride. Dangers be damned.
I wish I had their moxie. I don’t.
Maybe next year. Or not.
