toning up the bum...tum and thighs
giving the old heart a good work out
using the car less = saving on fuel
yes all in all good healthy out in the fresh air exercise
but there are lots of "what if's" not to mention a few big BUTS...
the need to invest in a safety helmet sets alarm bells ringing...will I be stepping into the world of dangerous pursuits...will I need knee and elbow padding just in case I unceremoniously fly over the handlebars and me in lycra cycling shorts...well let's not even go there...
I wonder if it has occurred to The Furry Boy he'll have to kick it up a few gears to keep up...gone will be the days of his ambling along sniffing sessions...crikey I hope he doesn't have any ideas about riding pillion..
will I be missing out on nature's snacks as I speed past on 2 wheels
perhaps I should just avail myself of the free fitness equipment provided by our local Council...yes the same one that is constantly cash strapped but yet can find the money for stuff that nobody uses...
But I may have hit on a solution...the "try before you buy" option...there's a perfectly good...used twice mountain bike and helmet in the garage...another of hubby's great intentions so I'm willing to give it a go for a week and if I don't kill myself I may just take the plunge...never say never...the purchase of a new mode of getting from A to B is definitely under consideration.
But before I rush off to have a little practice whizz around the block it's time to announce the winner of The Furry Boy's little give-away...
please e-mail us with your address Brenda and we'll get your parcel off in the mail
See you all tomorrow for a brand new Colour Challenge over at The Ribbon Girls
