Bridge Pedal Update

This will be us on race day!

This will be us on race day!

Last night I put that new helmet to good use! Justin, Erin & I went on a bikeride around the area. We made a stop at the Goodwill and quickly pursued the aisles of junk (while wearing our helmets of course) while Justin lovingly watched the bikes outside.

I have to admit, it was a rough ride for me. It was fun, and i enjoyed ya know, actually feeling my muscles work. But I was tired! I don’t know if it was because i hadn’t slept well on Sunday night and then had a long day at work – but i couldn’t stop yawning. OH and probably the fact that I’m incredibly out of shape has something to do with it too.

This morning I awoke to a very sore butt! Why can’t they make mountain bike seats like cruiser bike seats!? I’ve got a big butt people – I need a little more padding. In total we only rode 8 miles. Kinda sad when you think we’re trying to get ready for 24 at the bridge pedal.

But besides a sore butt, i feel good and I’m looking forward to the next ride!

This weekend we want to try and do a real long one. Who’s up for a Saturday ride?

    I heard Sauvie’s Island has good trails, and they’re supposedly pretty flat, so maybe good for beginners. We’re all going to be out there on Saturday hanging at the beach/berry picking so you should ride on by!! 24 miles here we come!!!
