Keep Moving

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I decided to ride the new NorthCoast Trail from Fremont, Ohio to Elmore, which is somewhere around 10 or 11 miles. The plan was to have our son ride back, bring the van and pick us up in Elmore. However, my husband got the really good idea to ride back instead. Needless to say, we made it, but 21 miles was definately the furthest we had ridden for a very long time!

Bicycle riding is supposed to be good cardio exercise and , hopefully, good for the arthritic knees, which I inherited from my mom. It may be a little late, but now I can honestly say that "I now understand what she went through with the pain!"

My husband and I both have the "sissy" gel seats for the bikes, but I am thinking of adding a pillow!

  1. This is excellent advice. Staying active when in retirement is vital for emotional and physical well being. A bike ride is a fantastic idea. Just getting out into the fresh air can change yoour attitude from bad to good and recharge your batteries.
