Before I could drive I used a bicycle.  I enjoyed riding my bike all over town.  Now I need to exercise and a stationary bike is just not doing it for me.  Last week I decided to try the bicycle again on the broadwalk at Hollywood Beach.   There is a place where one can rent all kinds of bikes from a half hour up to a week.  I started with the half hour on this lovely Sedona Giant.  After a shakey beginning I began to relax and enjoy the view.   It was very enjoyable.
Today I went for an hour.  It wasn't difficult at all.  The sound of the waves, the fresh sea air and the tourists strolling along made it a most rewarding experience. The weather has been terrific.  My intention is to continue.  If I continue long enough I will consider buying my own bike. Not only have I lowered my blood pressure,  I have lost weight.  If you haven't been on a bicycle in a while I heartily recommend it!

  1. I'm SO glad you liked your GIANT bike....I have a road Giant, 2 Cruisers, and a mountain bike.
    WELCOME TO BIKE-LAND!!! It's a great way to exercise, and the old saying is true: you never forget how to ride a bike!
    You go girl...I'd ride with you if I were closer!
