I love riding my bike, and my favorite part of the ride is being outdoors and enjoying the scenery. But I know my limits, and my days of riding out side are over for the season. However, I'm not done riding!
Riding indoors and staring at a wall listening to music isn't ideal, but it'll work in a pinch. Though, the challenge I had was putting my bike on that dreaded stationary trainer. The last two years I had a riding buddy set it up for me. In the blink of an eye I was up and running.
Of course I shouldn't have blinked, because I had no idea how he did it. Remember me and that "teach a man to fish" theory; I should have learned to "fish".
This year it was impossible to find a time when my buddy could set me up. Looks like I would have to teach myself to fish.
But you know me, I'm resourceful. Where there's a will there's a way! That, and You-tube doesn't hurt either. I watched the guy put his bike on his trainer and I knew I had this.
I had my front wheel stabilizer out and ready, and the trainer was next to my bike. If I was Sabrina from Bewitched I could just wiggle my nose and it would be on... but since I'm not, I won't.
Of course, my bike had to go near the wall because I needed to make room for my mat for yoga and strength training,and of course my treadmill had to fit too.
I knew from the video that this little guy had to come off of my bike...
Presto! Simple enough.
Then put the one from the trainer back on. Oddly enough, it looked just like the one I just took off. What was the point...
It sure looked like it was mission accomplished.
And I did it all by myself!!
Don't you just love when a plan comes together?!?
And a bonus... I have one more part than I started with... Oops:) I sure hope that wasn't important.
Okay, so I might not be perfect, but one thing I am is determined. And no one can say I didn't try!
Have a great day!!
