I know I haven’t been writing daily and I plan on changing that. This is the perfect time to share what I’ve learned this last year about health and biking with you during the winter season when things slow down a bit. (Who am I kidding? Lol!) Not that I’ll quit biking here in the Bay Area, in California, I can bike all year as the weather doesn’t get close to freezing very often.
This was my first summer biking and hitting my target weight in August. Exciting times for me while I made many discoveries about myself and my health. I learned a lot and through strengthening my bad knees with my biking was able to walk for miles again. I was buying awesome new workout clothes, biking in beautiful areas and taking great photos to share. I wasn’t spending much time sitting down to write.
I promise I’ll write and share my photography more often. Now that I have so much riding time under my belt I have a lot more to share with you. I hope you will stop by and share with me too. I’d love to know where you’re at in your cycling experience. What do you want to hear?
It’s not summer anymore! My biking wardrobe now includes a knit cap under my brain bucket (helmet), long underwear under my compression jacket (with thumb holes), leather gloves, and a scarf if I need it. I wear compression capri workout pants but my legs don’t get cold enough in this weather. I keep a cheap rain suit (clear pants and coat) in my bike bag and use it. Keeps me going until springtime.
Thirty minutes into my ride when my core temperature warms up and I get into my target heart-rate zone my muscles warm up and I feel like I’m flying. I am one with the world and my rubber on the ground is the only thing holding me to the earth.
I’ll keep biking and writing about it. Lol!
BTW, I’m putting up more photos on my sidebar. Pictures from my rides on the Bay Trail and riding mates of course! Please be patient as I add them.
Happy Biking During The Holidays!
