Winter biking season opens!

Posted Dec 19 2009 12:00am

Me. Biking. In winter, even.

A year ago, this would have been unthinkable for me, but now that I'm almost 20 pounds lighter and I intend to stay that way, I'm looking for ways to have fun and burn a few calories.

I've been making my peace with indoor workouts, but always feeling like I was a rat in a wheel. Until today! After whining about missing my weekly bike rides during October, when the days were longer and the pavement dry, my husband went for a solution. (Aren't guys great?) He couldn't change the weather, but he could change my tires. Off came the slicks I'd used for tooling around town, and on went the ice-grabbing studded tires.

I donned a few extra layers, gloves and my helmet, and off I went, biking to a buddy's house to show off and get a well-deserved fist bump. Love those friends who love biking, too. I covered the six-ish miles within an hour, and that includes a chat. Yee-HAH! I'm back on the roads!
