I meant to put a story in here when I first posted this picture; however, it took me awhile, anyway, here goes. I bought this fine looking bike about 4 years ago. The summer after my weight loss operation. I was with my brother David and his family and I was feeling really good. I mentioned to David that I would realy to start riding a bike again. So he took me to a local bike shop and I bought my very first expensive bike. I have been riding my Gary Fisher ever since. I feel so exhilarated every time I get on my bike. When you loss as much weight as I have over the last four years, it is amazing how wonderful it feels to do simple everyday activities, like riding a bike, that you couldn't do before. So, in honor of my Gary Fisher below is a poem to commerate by bike - yeah I know corny!!
Riding My Gary Fisher
Legs are pumping, heart is pounding, wheels are turning
Steady even breath, smile on my face, such a wonderful feeling
Gliding, pedeling, take steady even strides
Feels like I am floating, I love bike rides
Oh no, a hill, need to switch gears
Pedelng slower, can bring you to tears
This hill is so long, it is getting very hot
I will not stop
I need to get to the top!!
Muscles are burning, legs are getting sore
I don't care, I know the score
I reached the top and now I can break
Take a sip of water and celebrate!
Time to go down hill and feel the wind in my face
Faster and fast - floating and gliding what a wonderful pace
Up a hill and down again - pedeling with lots of vigor
Oh how exhilarating it is riding my Gary Fisher!!!
