A flood of memories
Laura Fluke - New Baltimore, MI
I have to admit the mere statement, ""Tell us about your first bike."" evoked a flood of memories I really never realized existed. I was actually pretty surprised by the amount of memories associated with a myriad of bikes over the years.
But as the request asks for one, I'd have to say the Trek FX 7.5 that I bought to return to cycling after a total knee replacement and to ride in my very first duathlon. I had friend challenge me to sign up for a triathlon. I thought I'd start small...that year, I cycled 1300 miles. I was hooked and the addiction to cycling had returned, helping me to lose over 70 pounds in 10 months. In the years of 2011 & 2012, I cycled 2015 miles and 2500 miles respectively. I've completed two centuries in under 8 hours. Our family has made cycling a very integral part of our recreational & fitness lifestyle and at the same time bringing us all closer.
My love for cycling started over 35 years ago and I have no intent in stopping any time soon.blog comments powered by Disqus
