Maiden ride after.....


4 looooong years!


That's how long it was sitting around, moved from one house to another and finally it saw tarmac again, from all angles! haha


Of course, I had to perform some stunts! I decided to ride 'proper' with helmet and bike shoes, wanting to practise what clipping and unclipping.


Comfortably 'rode' a slight downhill towards a flat, then turned around, backtrack again. OK, the uphill didn't look very tormenting, but for someone who hasn't ridden for 4 years, and first time clipping my shoes.....I realised my bike almost came to a stand still and it was too late before I unclipped! So you can guess what happened next! AH-HAH! Thank God knee scrapped a bit and no one to laugh at me! *shy*

After half an hour of going round and round and round and realising that I need to do a lot more (perhaps the gym would help) before attempting some mild slopes, I decided I had enough. Jaja, luckily I didn't follow you guys the other day....I'd probably be pushing my bike ALL the way! Maybe I shall target 1 month from now! (keeping fingers n toes crossed)

I kept trying to imagine how I did it the last time I started riding. I guess it was more or less flats and with a couple of friends with lots of patience. ;0 Now, I need to get down this steep hill where I call home, and then decide how to get myself up after my rides on the flats.....

If there's a will, there's always a way!!
