Pounding the Pavement

Posted by Scott on Jun 30th, 2007

There’s a reason why I haven’t been blogging much lately. And this is the reason:

After more than 12 years, I’m back into cycling. When I was in high school I was obsessed with mountain bikes, worked at a bike shop as a mechanic (also did some sales), and did some cross-country races. For various reasons I didn’t ride regularly for a long time, and now my interest has been rekindled, this time in road riding.

I can’t express how wonderful it is to return to a physical activity that I feel so passionate about. I’ve hiked and hit the gym off and on for many years, but this is something I work into my life nearly every day. I’ve had this bike for about six weeks now and have been rebuilding my fitness base as a cyclist. Today I did my longest ride so far, a 37 mile tour of some surrounding towns. My goal is to do my first century (riding 100 miles in a day) by the end of this season. I’m even commuting by bike back and forth to work on occasion.

It’s great to be back in the saddle, both literally and figuratively.
