It's been months since I've ridden my bike.
I know, it's ridiculous to type that and realize I've yet to get back on the bicycle despite my plans to journey cross country next year.
"I'm sorry, what was that you said?"
Yes, I'm still planning to ride to Oregon next year. I'm planning to bicycle across the country even though I have not ridden my bike in over two months and I have no good reason why I'm not cycling regularly.
I'm changing my itinerary a bit from my earlier plans. And I'm really only five months away from leaving. So, I have a lot of work to do, and I want to feel ready when I head out in May.
My training schedule starts off with low mileage in January and February and picks up in March and April. I plan on mailing my bike off to where I'm beginning my ride, and I expect to do that at the start of May. So really, I have four months of riding before I pack 'er up and begin this adventure.
I can't wait to share as I prepare for my ride.
