I got myself a brand new bicycle. I wanted one for outdoor exercising...specifically for the miles of great trails close to my home. Jogging hurts my creaky old joints so biking is my solution. Doing cardio in the gym week after week, especially when the weather is great, is a bore.
Anyway, I took the bike out for its maiden spin this afternoon. It really is true that you never forget how to ride a bike; however, it evidently is possible to forget how stupid some automobile drivers can be and are sometimes so wrapped up in talking on their cell phone they are oblivious to anything or anybody else.
One such idiot was weaving down the road yakking on her cell phone forcing me to jump a curb and scrape the shit out of my leg. Okay....it's not a big wound, not even worth a bandaid....but it fucking hurts. I don't think this is what is meant by that no pain no gain saying.
