Bicycling

Riding a bicycle is something I’ve been doing since I was a child.  When riding around my neighborhood while growing up, I loved the freedom of having my own “wheels” and would park right next to our front porch so that I could easily hop onto my bicycle once I stepped out of our front door.

I continued to bicycle when I was in college, and even after our children were born.  When my husband decided to also purchase a racing bicycle for himself, we enjoyed riding together.  And without really thinking through how much training it would require, my husband signed both of us up to ride in the MS150 race with his company.

This race is a two day race, from Houston to Austin and I am happy to say that I finished the race and that it was a great experience.  Recently, I’ve taken up bicycling again; and purchased a bicycle that reminds me of my very first one. Who knows, maybe I’ll ride the MS150 again in a year or two.
