Meet my bike. Well, my brand of bike but not MY bike, though I kind of wish it was because I am coveting the hardware on those cupboards! I wonder whose house it is? Maybe I can wangle an invite...
Woops, back to the point. I've been reading a lot about setting goals lately, go figure, and I've decided to create some sort of goal for my recumbant exercise bike riding to give it some relevance by having a destination. So...I've decided I am going to ride my bike all the way to my new home near Alberton, Prince Edward Island!! All 1902 kilometres although minus the slush, the snow and the traffic as I'll be staying cozy, safe and somewhat sweaty - in my bedroom at home.
I've calculated on my well-worn calculator that if I bike 15kms for 5 days a week I will reach my destination in PE by the end of June, just in time to actually DRIVE there for my summer vacation:)!!:) I've already biked 30kms in the past two days so already I'm down to 1872 kms. In the spring I prefer to get outside on my road bike so will figure out some way to measure the distances that I ride.
This is so exciting - I feel much more motivated now that I have somewhere to go! Even if it is just in my imagination....for now! I'll be sure to take some pictures along the way! But meanwhile you can check on my progress in the sidebar, just above my personal finance goals and weight loss goal:p
