My First Ride

Today, I went out on my first bike ride…  The Music City Bikeway came very highly recommended – and now I understand why.  It’s over 26 miles long with a variety of landscapes and terrains.  The carefully constructed routes span from scenic greenways, major Metroparks, and leads right into the heart of downtown Nashville.  Even for someone with little to no attention span, my interest was totally peaked the whole ride.  **Oooo, squirrel!!**   Sorry, I’m back.

Two Rivers Park – Cumberland River at Sunset

My first ride was short – just over 4 miles.  I wanted to test the waters…  Figure out what muscles are going to be used most.  Get a feel for my bike, practice changing gears, braking, and finding ways to sit that hurt the least.  I’m going to take this bad boy out again tomorrow and see what my 10 mile time is…  🙂

#NerdAlert, I took my bike out on a photo shoot.  10-second self timer FTW.

I’d like to recommend the Lazer Blade helmet with MIPS (multi-directional Impact Protection System).  It weighs less than 1/2 lb, fits very comfortably and securely to my head, has excellent ventilation, and it’s just an over all good looking helmet…
