New Year Resolution

I'm now getting close to end of the thirty's and its been along time since I have done any real exercise, I felt it was time to start taking better care of myself. So after some though I have dusted off the old mountain bike and taken it out of its 14 year retirement. I gave it a quick service, oil and lube, New tubes, handle bar grips, lights, brake pads, I also got new gloves and helmet.

I did a couple of laps around the block to make sure everything was ok, Nearly killed myself, a push bike and a motorbike are quite different. I forgot how fast a mountain bike reacts compared to a heavy old motorbike. But its a start. I will now just need to build up to been able to bike to work as after my wee trip I was knacker. Arrrhh the joys of been fat and old and having to get back into shape.
