I bought my bike. I have shoes. I have gloves. I have spandex. I have matching orange water bottles. I look like a cyclist (to a non-cyclist) but I couldn't fool the pro's. I've got a long way to go.
A man named McCool did my bike fitting at 2nd and 2nd cycle store in SLC. He told me "On the tenth day you are a cyclist." Go three times a week for three weeks and on the tenth day you will be a cyclist.
Eager to learn I got started...
Monday morning I road up Citycreek Canyon.
Wednesday I road out to the Great Salt Lake marina.
Friday I'm riding to Provo and Saturday I'm riding back from Provo which equalls 100 miles.
Eight rides to go and I will be a cyclist. (fingers crossed)
