Last year, after my bicycling nosedived, followed by my fitness, I wanted to ride to work again, but I was too out of shape. I bought a Trek Super Commute 8 to help. It’s an electric-assist bicycle. There’s no throttle. You still have to pedal. Some consider it cheating. I considered it a way to get exercise again. It would have been, had I rode it to work more than a handful of times.
It sat in my bedroom for far too long. Today, I rode it to work for the first time in many months. I can make the 15-mile journey in an hour on this. The ride home is similar.
I had actually intended to wait for a bit more dieting before worrying about exercise, but with a warm, if somewhat damp, January, it seemed a good time.
I’m glad I rode. I need to do it a couple of times a week.
