First Maiden Ride
The following day right after I got my bike, I’ve decided to go out for a test run. Never the less, it was sure one heck of an experience. Considering the fact that it’s been a very long time since I last rode a bicycle, what more a road bike. Which was quite a challenge due to the size of it. Never the less, I got up extra early that morning to give it a go to see how I did.
After going around a few times, boy was it tough. Especially when trying to hold the handle, plus my butt hurts due to the saddle. Once I started getting used to it, I went and try out switching gears as it was not your conventional gears switching method. So that posed a challenge for me. After riding for close to 40 minutes I’ve decided to head back.
Overall it was a good ride, as I managed to cover about 10KM on the first try run. And boy was I sweating, which is good actually. Hopefully I’ll keep up this habit as I seriously need the exercise. Never the less, I got to thank my friend Kit Soon for continuously nagging me to start riding.
