Back in the Saddle...

It's been a few years since I took my bike riding seriously.
To be fair doing two rides in 3 weeks doesn't necessarily mean I'm taking it seriously now, except the first ride was all up hill or down hill and yesterday's ride didn't have any steep climbs it had some very, very long uphill climbs.

Picture the mountain climber on the Price is Right and you will have a very good idea of how I get up hills on my bike.

Slow and steady making a few stops along the way.

Words of wisdom from my husband and bike fitter Smiley

'Never get off the bike'

Stop. Rest. Drink some water. Keep your butt in the saddle.

Unfortunately my saddle isn't fitting the same as it did last year when I rode. So I will be heading in to R&E Cycle this weekend to get fitted for a new seat.

Today it feels like my left butt cheek and right butt cheek are on a teeter totter.

It was a beautiful morning/afternoon for a 45 mile bike ride. Especially when I had been planning on doing the 25 mile loop for the Tour de Cure.

The loop took us out of Woodinville, through Maltby into Snohomish, back down thru to Duvall then onto Redmond, hit the Burke-Gilman trail and head back to the Chateau Ste. Michelle where I gobbled up a cheese pizza and half a bottle of wine.

Oh Chateau Ste. Michelle Mimi Chardonnay, you were perfect.

Needless to say I was in bed asleep at 6:34 last night according to my fitbit sleep tracker.

Guess what?
Tomorrow I'll have some knittish updates. I know it's been a while and I appreciate all of you who are still around.
