Construction on a new bike path linking Fairview Park to Greendell Park, which is just north of 121 (Pershing Road) is about to begin. The construction was set to begin last year but due to funding issues and high bids the project was put on hold. It’s a go now. I’m very much looking forward to the path’s completion. It will be just west of the Ravina/Home Park area – my neck of the woods.
I took my bike out for a spin last night and this morning and I’m definitely going to have to work up to riding all the way to Fairview Park and back. I don’t think I’d try it now without an ambulance riding behind me. My thighs were like jelly after my short ride this morning. I thought walking three miles a day on the treadmill would have me better prepared – nope! Entirely different muscle groups are involved. I already have a new bicycle seat ( or saddle if you’re into bicycle jargon) on its way. I’ve had my bicycle for 20 years and the seat it came with has no padding and no springs. Why? I have no idea. That’s like having a sofa stuffed with crushed brick. Needless to say, that seat is a torture device and it has to go. Should have gotten rid of it a long time ago.
