finally, it happened.
i had a slew of excuses. now i have the equipment to make a difficult ride easier (shorts, pedals, cranks, tread). shoulda just stuck with the bike, it’s infinitely easier (just read mikefule’s)
but i got on the trail, 2 and something years after i first bought the blasted thing.
i think i did about 2.5 miles the first one, crotch a little tingly.
lesson learned: don’t race a mountain biker if:
you’re a novice,
you mind bleeding.
second one, i think i did closer to 3something miles. crotch not used to the weight.
lesson learned: it’s easier to keep pace with a slow jogger.
overall lesson learned: it’s bloody hard to go up a hill.
