is it okay to look silly on a bike??
riding a bike seems real easy when you are young....slowly you manage to get your balance and off you go...but when you haven't ridden a bike in over a decade, the idea of hopping onto a bike again can seem pretty scary....
you just have to sit in traffic and watch all the bikers ride past you, in their spandex clothing...all geared up for the ride...with their water bottles in place, their shaved legs and perfectly fitted helmets....moving so rhythmically, you almost feel like joining them....and then it hits you....these bikers and their easy riding skills are intimidating!!!!!!!!
when you hop on a bike, you want to be able to have some kind of flow going....the idea of having to stop every five minutes for a break, a breather and a stretch...means that the ride might take for ever!!!!!!!
falling off your bike either because you simply loose your balance or just can't pedal any longer can be pretty embarrassing but then walking your bike home because walking is far easier than pedaling can also be embarrassing....
so is spandex a necessity on a bike and is it okay to simply enjoy the ride
on or off your bike??
