I Got a New Bike!

By: The Dude on the Right
I did something yesterday that I haven't done in three or four years (that last time was on Long Beach Island in New Jersey, known for its summer resort areas and Chowderfest, but it was just a quick trip for some breakfast so I don't really think it counts).  Anyway, I went for a bike ride.  It's not that I haven't wanted to go on a bike ride, it's just there was one essential thing missing - a bike.  But on my last trip to the homestead, my brother, who has two bikes, let me take his old Schwinn World Sport.  I hauled it back to my pad, and finally, yesterday, had some time to load it into the dude-mobile, head to my local forest preserve, and take it for a spin.  They say you never forget how to ride a back, and I guess they are right, but I have to admit I was a little shaky at first.  My first issue, dealing with toe clips, but I finally got adjusted to them, and even though it was one of those multi-use trails, I made it around the trail no worse for wear.

Now this may not seem like anything significant, but when was the last time you went on a nice bike ride?  Me, I used to bike a lot, back in Ohio down lots of country roads, and when I was in college at I.I.T., the Lake Shore Drive bike path was a fabulous ride.  But then my bicycle broke and I never did anything about it.  The other thing is that I have a bet with my sister about some weight-loss issues, and this adds a new weapon to my arsenal, along with my coat rack, umm, I mean exercise bike, and this other crazy contraption that I don't want to admit I own unless I actually get off my ass and use it.  It supposedly worked for a couple of famous personalities, but we'll see on that one, in any case, it really felt good to hear the crunching of the limestone under my tires and have the wind go through my hair under my bike helmet.  After I caught my breath, it was good to hear the Cubs beat the Giants on my drive back to the dude-pad.

That's it for this one!  I'm The Dude on the Right!!  L8R!!!
