Cyclist in the Making

Yesterday Jacques and I went out and bought some mountain bikes for the both of us.  He'd been thinking of getting a new one for awhile now and we decided now was the right time.  He used to be really into cycling all the time and I think it's great that he wants to get back into it.  We both wanted to find some way of getting some exercise every day and we were settling with taking the dogs on a walk around the neighborhood every night when he got home from work.  But it just wasn't enough.  So now our nightly walks are going to turn into nightly rides on a trail located conveniently near the entrance to our neighborhood!  We took an early morning ride today to get familiar with the trail and see how far we could go and it was amazing!  I hadn't been on a bike in such a long time and I'd totally forgotten how fun and refreshing it is to feel the wind blasting in my face, cruising along to the beautiful scenery.

We plan on taking bike trips out to wine country, San Francisco, the Redwood forest in Oakland, among other places we find along the way.  We've both fallen a bit out of shape, spending entirely too much time just sitting on the computer, or watching TV and it feels so great to get out of the house without relying on the car, where we're once again just sitting.  





I can't wait to see where this new adventure in cycling will take us, literally and physically!
