30daysofbike

Yesterday was the first of 30 days I have promised to ride my bike. I must admit, I’m not that good at keeping this sort of thing going for THAT long.

It has all started well tho. Yesterday was an easy one. The normal 5km commute for the girls to school and then up the hill to Uni and back home again. That was all on the roadie.

Then I changed clothes, shoes and bike for the ride to school assembly in the afternoon… I try not to go to school in Lycra too often. It makes all the mums a bit hot under the collar… And the dads r just jealous they don’t look as good/fit as me!

It was such a relaxing ride to school. I like riding with my wife. She rides an old step-thru that we bought from a friend and it is a very heavy bike. We just plod along and I usually take my single speed for these little jaunts. It is nice ‘us’ time. Little discussions happen about life or about things we happen upon along the way. We just enjoy one another’s company.

My aim for this 30 days of the bike is mindfulness. I want to truly experience each ride… be in the moment.

I will do my best to keep to it.

Blog you later.

    Keep it up Wombat, your my inspiration! I commute so that’s the easy part too, I figure if I’m having a non-cycling day mood I’l ride to the shops for an icecream, there’s my motivation.

      Ice-cream and coffee… Both cover a multitude of bad moods! Thanks for reading.
