I’m riding and awful lot this year not only because I like to ride but I’m also in a competition representing my town in a national bike challenge. Traditionally we do very well and this, our third year looks to be the best year for miles ridden.
Being in a competition is my motivation to put in those extra 5-10 or 15 miles extra on most rides. I’m using two bikes most days, a Scott commuter bike for doing stuff around town, and a Felt road bike for those hammer rides. There are times like today when the bikes cross paths. Today for instance, I rode my Scott SUB 40 (Speedy Urban Bike), into the city for lunch. I stumble across another rider, Charlie and we decide to head north. When he turned back to go home, I kept going and eventually found my way to the back country roads for the ride home. A 10 mile ride, turned into a 23 mile easy spin. I have to say that this retirement living is working out pretty good.
One thought on “Riding in the City with Charlie”
Happy days riding, keep it up you will stay young and wonder why you ever retired.
