Some of you know that I started a new journey called “Bike Riding” although when I mention the word bike. People tend to picture a motor cycle.
I am training for my first stage of the 1,000 mile bike ride next year. I am training to ride 100 miles in August via the “Team and Training” and I am helping to raise money to help fight blood cancer.
The last few weeks I have been learning new terminology and a new culture. The “Bike Culture” at first glance looks like a group of competitive people. But, what I am slowly learning is that the “Bike Culture” is full of good hearted people.
The first terminology I learned was the word “Saddle”. The word saddle is the word use to describe your bike seat.
The first thing people told me was to upgrade my Saddle. But, honestly I think regardless of your Saddle the hardest thing is getting use to sitting on a bike for 6 yo 8 hours of a time.
I have been riding for a few weeks and I finally got around getting bike shorts.
Getting an upgraded Saddle made my ride softer but the bike shorts have made my ride enjoyable.
Now, I just need to save some money for the helmet and the tire tools I need to have in the next few weeks.
