note to self: get gel seat

my latest accessory:
ta DA! if anyone was a little unsure of my status as queen nerd, this bike helmet solidifies it! throw in my sweat towel tucked into my sports bra strap and i will never be unthroned.

i went biking(outside, on a trail) for the first time ever with some babes this morning. whilst i've been an avid cycle class attendee for about 5 years now, i haven't really ridden an actual bike to an actual location on actual pavement since i was twelve years old when my best friend emily clark and i would race down moreland school road at breakneck speeds, weaving in and out of traffic, just to go spend out meager funds on stale candy at circle k. later, there was a nice shooting at that very same circle k. and that is why i will never let my kids do anything fun, ever.
i digress.
actual safe, law-abiding biking was really fun and a nice change up to my exercise routine.
due to my history of falling off things, i was a little nervous about falling off my bike or riding off the trail. i did run right into a sign and a bumped into a fence, but at least i stayed on.

while south carolina is incredibly beautiful, nobody's bum looks good squished on a bike from behind. furthermore, i really need to go buy a gel seat cover. i was hitting high notes every time i hit a bump.

thanks to jenna for risking her life and taking this picture of me pedaling really fast.

Oh no! The picture didn't show up!

I thought you were an experienced street biker. I might have been more afraid. :)

I just got a bike and helmet myself and was just thinking I need a gel seat cover too! Happy riding! :)
