First bike ride of the year

My bike has been calling out to me to ride it.

Finally, this morning, I wheeled it off my deck and onto the street. The poor rusty chain didn't really want to change gears so much, but I coaxed it into place.

My legs are no longer used to the ride. But that will change.

By this summer, I'll be going everywhere with my open-air wheels and my legs won't even notice the hills.

It was nice to catch up on my reading on the TTC over the winter, but the time has come to get rid of that hibernation fat and brave the crazy streets. So far, I've only had one brush with death out there, but I'm hungry for more.

However I'm not looking forward to my uphill ride home tonight...
