When was the last time you rode a bicycle?

Posted by   + Show Post

 DD21 and I went for a bike ride yesterday.  It is something we always say were going to do but never do it.  We rode for about 6 miles.

We rode on a back country road with green rolling hills, cows and their babies staring at us while chewing their cuds( all the babies were white) big houses with smoke coming out of the chimneys,  horses, goats, chickens and peacocks in their yards.  

When was the last time you went for a bike ride?  Who did you go with and where did you ride?

 The beach cruiser, with the basket in the front.  I could just see you riding down to the market to pick up a few things.

Wow....a long time ago!!  I've ridden a stationary bike at the gym.  I do kind of wish I had a bike.  One of the old timey looking ones with the wide tires and WIDE seat!!!!   lol  I really do.   :)

 You should, it will keep you young and in shape!

Quoting cherylam:

it's been years, lol... I don't have a bike right now, but we've been talking about getting each one of us.  Gas prices aren't going to go down this spring.

 LOL downhill isnt so bad.

Quoting Bmat:

About 10 years ago. We live in a hilly area so it was more than I felt comfortable with.

 Your little dd dosent have any interest in bike riding?

Quoting LEK19:

Sounds like you had a nice ride! The last time I rode a bike was about 9 yrs ago. My SO and I rode together a few times, but most of the time it was by myself through town and in the country.

Oh, I remembered HOW to ride it .. I just forgot how to STOP.  lol.

Quoting Esmrlda:

 sidesplittinglaughterNo, I missed that post.  LOl oh boy, you peed your pants? I hope you were laughing so hard you couldnt help it. I thought they said once you learn how to ride a bike you never forget? 

Quoting suzeebloch:

Okay well Esme, I already told the story about me hopping on a bike a few years ago after 35 years of not riding, falling over on the bike because I forgot how to stop and then peeing my pants, then trying one more time with the same results except plus a sprained wrist while my BF was laughing at me the whole time.  I'm not gonna tell that story again.

About 14 years ago unless you count an exercise bike. Myself, dh and boys used to ride around the neighborhood when we lived in town.

About two years ago she wiped out going down a hill. She basically took a little over a year to feel comfortable and trust herself again on a bike. This past year we lived in a small town on a hill. There was no place for her to really practice without loading up the bike and going somewhere else. The end of this past summer she really rode without training wheels. So she is a bit behind. We now live in a "flatter" town, so we are hoping she will get good enough in her biking skills to go for family rides. She still spooks when it comes to hills.
