I’m very big on walking, but I’ll never forget the wonderful sensation of cycling, and watching the scenery glide quickly by♪
I enjoy walking and routine bicycle errands on my grocery-getter bike. I hadn’t really conditioned my legs much, and this was to be my first bike tour. So I did a little conditioning on my own, and had an exhilarating ride along the Tama river.
Experienced riders patiently taught me how to use the gear shift, and even how to get on and off the unfamiliar cross bike. And although I went at my own pace, bringing up the rear, I stayed with the tour and had a wonderfully enjoyable time. I love taking walks around town, but I’ll never forget how enjoyable cycling is– and experiencing the way the scenery glides by at an entirely different pace.
