The Green Girl and Lexa went for their very first road ride today.
I've been avoiding the streets because I am petrified of traffic. I've limited all my riding to beach paths.
Unfortunately for me, as far as I can tell, in order to get some hill work in, I am going to need to learn to ride on the road.
My boyfriend offered to ride in his car with me to help assuage my fears.
I was so nervous that I forgot to turn on Mr. Green Garmin and there was no way any picture taking was going to happen.
I was somewhat okay riding on the shoulder but I dreaded every time I came across a parked car and had to go around it. I was worried a parked car door would fly open or the vehicle to the left would swerve and squash me.
My boyfriend became so concerned with my riding that he actually drove next to me when cars went by to shield me from traffic.
When we got home, he told me I need a lot more practice. He also asked me why I don't change gears. I told him I don't understand gears yet.
