My first time on a bike.
On Sunday I went biking for the first time this year and the third time in the past 4 years. It was GREAT! In Taipo there is a huge biking trail along the bay. The trails move all the way down to the Shatin and it has been said I could ride my bike all the way to Sai Kung.
The weather was hot at around 28 degrees but along the river it wasn’t that bad. There was a strong wind which cooled me off a lot. I drank a lot of water on the way since I was sweating too much. I met a Brit where I rented the bike and he showed me a path to Oh Ma Shan. The whole trip was about 2 hours and it was great. The bike was a good racing style bike, meaning very narrow tires. It was easy to ride. My legs were hurting after a while. My ass also hurt on the small seat. It was nice to ride with someone so I can talk and not listen to music.
The ride got me thinking of making this a regular thing. I plan to go tonight as well. It only cost $20HK ($2.50 US) for an hour. If I keep it up, I will buy a bike after coming back from my vacation.
The best part was coming home and having a great sleep at night.
