Bike Ride

I went on a bike ride with my girls Sunday morning. We decided we would ride until we just couldn't anymore. I think we made a total trip of about four miles, which at the time, seemed like waaaay more. It took us almost an hour and a half.

For some reason, my feet don't meet the ground when I'm on my seat. It is all the way down, btw. :)
I have determined I need a double cushioned seat and padded pants! My ass was sore from the moment I got off!

It still hurts like hell. But the ride was worth it. We had a blast and enjoyed mommy-daughter time.  It was quiet and not a lot of traffic, which is normal here on Sundays.

That was pretty much my work out for the day..well, that and grocery shopping!

I don't think I will be getting back on a bike any time soon. I would have thought with all my extra padding, I would be fine..but apparently "that" area isn't protected :)

Biking scares me but I'm glad you had fun.It's worth it when you're with your girls.

I like riding a bike as well but, "that" area is a sensitive spot for guys too. Someone told me once that one has to get used to riding a bike. I guess you have to keep doing it to build up a tolerance or something. Yeah, fat chance of that happening.

I'm glad you were able to get out there with family though. That is what makes it all worthwhile.

I can't seem to get my wife on a bike. When she was young, she crashed on a bike, broke her front tooth and was knocked unconscious. To this day, she still has some innate fear of riding a bike. Plus, I think that she does not like the pain in brings her in "that" spot.

Good for you, Sugar! My butt is so not made for biking... I've never liked it much, but in theory, it sounds fabulous. My daughter would probably only agree to such a thing if I BOUGHT her something at the other end *rolls eyes*
