Riding a Bike

So, I got a bike for my birthday. We had our famous block sale this past weekend, and a guy down the street fixes-up bikes for it, and sells them at the garage sale. He gave us a sweet deal on a fairly decent ladies bike.
Anyway, I haven’t ridden a bike in probably 8 years, maybe 9. I had one in college that i’d write up the hill behind the (now defunct) Macdonald Health Center and then cruise across campus and then down to the Cannon Center.
But ladies, something has changed in those eight years.
Can anyone say episiotomy?
Seriously, how did I ride my bike for hours on end before this? I am hoping to work-up to it (and I did just go buy a nice gel pad to put on my bike seat) but curently I’m having a problem sitting anywhere (except our cushy couch).
On a brighter note, it did make my thighs burn in some nice weight-loss areas, so I’m excited to build-up how long I can ride it.

    I can’t even think of the last time I rode a bike either. Makes my tushy sore just thinking of it. Cool though – bikes are fun! That’s what I’m trying to persuade my 7 year old anyway.
