Feeling lazy. Haven't gone out on my bike 2 weeks now. It's Sunday morning. I should be riding... Why am i not... 😐
@evelyn yesterday I struggled with motivation. I resolved it by downloading an audio book from libravox and listened to that on my ride.
Other tricks I use is to put a treat in my ride (eg:riding to a fish and chip shop on the beach 70min away) or brainstorming what jobs/errands/visits I can do by bike.
Then i got sick. Nothing major. But now... 🤷♀️
I'll try tomorrow morning. 🤞
Still got a long way to go. Haven't learned the other basics. Like starting/stopping off* the saddle. Using just 1 hand so the other can signal. Track standing. Bunny hop, uh... Okay, too ambitious 😁 #bikes #bicycles
I was* hoping to join a long ride this Sunday with a group of #foldie #cyclists. It's their yearly #Tomb2Womb ride -- from where our national hero #JoseRizal died to where he was born. I felt like I could do it even though it's 60kms each way. My problem was #cycling to the meeting spot @ Kilometer Zero in #Manila -- it's a long way and i didn't feel safe cycling alone. I asked the group of there's anyone i could ride with from my city to Manila. Nobody. 🙁 So i got lazy.
Pretty sure they don't ride straight. Plenty of stoplights plus lunch stop.
I'm not in Manila. Hence the need for a #BikeBuddy for the long ride to the meetup. Many of them go bimodal to the meetup. I can't do that. I can't do long rides on the old 16" #bike. I'd have to use the PAS 26" -- too cumbersome for buses and only 20" max allowed on the light railway #trains.
Anyway, the ride got aborted due to an accident. They only went as far as Aguinaldo Shrine.
