San Angelo - Map My Ride

1st Bicycle Ride

Years ago my mountain bike went missing from my front porch. I miss that bike. It was a large frame bike for a big body boy.

Fast forward 5 years and I’m back on a bike. Friday Grason and I test road a few bikes at Corpus bike shops. It was great to be riding even if it was just around the parking lot. My hip doesn’t hurt while riding so this is a good thing.

We are in San Angelo right now and my father inlaw was nice enough to let me ride his new mountain bike. After 6 miles on the road I had a flat  front tire.

I walked the bike to the auto part store and bought some slime and a pump. Next, I buzzed to china-mart and grabbed a new tube and a snickers bar.

Well after my tail bone was soar I kept riding and completed my 16.39 mile ride.

No one was riding with me, there were no time trials, but this was a victory. Since December my hip has been off and on. I was happy to discover my body was feeling great after a 16 mile ride. I hope to hit the trail soon. I’m also in the market for a new XL bicycle.

I will post about my bicycling companion app “Map My Ride” after a few rides.
