Over the River and Through the Woods...

...on Mountain Bikes we go.....

Alright fellow readers. Brace yourself. I'm about to begin exercising! Rob and I have purchased Mountain Bikes together, and I'm embarking on the mountain bike trail!

No lie, when Rob and I were discussing bikes, I admitted that the last time I was on a bike was probably when I was around 9 or 10 years old. And at that time, it was probably only a ride around the yard. I spent the majority of my childhood fearing kidnappers, so I wasn't to keen on riding a bike around the neighborhood alone.

So--he laughed HARD when I asked him if the brakes worked if I started pushing backwards on the pedals, like you used to on our Huffy and Schwinn bikes. appears the breaks are with your hands, and I have to learn GEARS, too??? I highly recommend that we put training wheels on my new bike until I have the whole gears and brakes thing learned.

Because honestly...having to remember HOW to ride, HOW to turn, what gear to be in, switching of the gears, may just push me over the edge of that mountain bike cliff!!!!

Without further ado, I do want to present to you my gorgeous new friend. (or enemy...ask me after our first ride!)
