|Biking in Lawrence|
I just lost my bike legs and it was not because of inactivity. I know that in Yellowstone we walked about 12,000 steps each day. On our overnight stops, coming and going, Barb and I would find the nearest "Big Box" store and walk around inside. Working on the rental had me on my feet all day and if you haven't climbed up and down a ladder several times, you don't know what sore knees are. (Hey, I am mid 60's)
During the first ride back, I found that the gears shift just wasn't quite right. I took it to the bike shop and he adjusted it and it is a little better but not by much. Guess I will just have to do some reading on line to get it right. I do find that I ride mostly in the middle ring and between three and five on the rear gears. That equates to 8 to 15 MPH for the most part.
Oh well, better go do something.
