Today, Sacred Life Sunday, I rode a bicycle alone for the first time in 36 years or so.
Well, actually LoveHubbie and I got a tandem about 8 years ago, but the weight capacity of the bike was 400 pounds, so we still have it but are holding off until our combined weights go below that again. Also, when I rode the tandem I never steered or really did too much except sit in the second seat and pedal hard. LoveHubbie would steer and stop and decide which way to go. In a similar way, our marriage has evolved, and it is much more apropos for us to each have our own bikes that we can ride together, but each be responsible for everything having to do with running it.
This is a very, very silly video of our first ever bike ride. It was SO much fun! We came home from the bike store and I ran in and got my video camera and viola---here you have it!
The impetus for us getting the bikes was Lori-Lyn. Ever since she shared her pictures, it looked like something I'd really want to do.
