Do any of you who read ride bicycles? We have been thinking of getting a couple bikes. Thinking it might round out our exercise routine a little. WE walk at least a mile and a half a day. Today it was three. But I was thinking Sherry hurt her knee a couple months ago walking in loose sand, so it might be good to have an alternative. Besides your knees don’t seem to get much exercise as you walk, other than support and forward and back motion.
The bike seems it would allow the knee to join in with some up and down motion. Many of the places we go allow for good biking. We rode for a while and enjoyed it. We already have a bike rack in Shirl’s basement to haul them around.
A girl passed us today on ‘inline’ skates. That also looked like a good exercise. I used to love to skate on steel wheels. Ohhh but what I would really love to be able to do is ride a skate board. NO! I am not going to try it, but do kids amaze you on those suckers? I liked a scooter when I was a kid, I cannot having a scooter without an upright handle. LOL
I will let you know if I ever try a skate board, I will blog from my hospital bed if I live thru the experiment!
Nite Shipslog gotta go ‘Johnny calls’.
I love this picture, it was taken in the 1930's
