This may not seem very blogworthy to some of you, but to me, after spending the last three months recovering from some rather invasive heel surgery, this is remarkable and is a big step forward.
Not only did I ride, but I rode from one end of the boardwalk to the other and back. Roughly 3 1/2 miles in all. Yes, my foot was killing me by the end, and yes, it was quite swollen by the end of the day, but still, I RODE A BIKE.
And I am happy I am once again able to do so.
The scenery up on the boardwalk was fun, too. It was Wildwood's 2013 Classic Car Show Weekend, and we were told there were about 600 classic cars expected at this event. They were lined up, all shiny and stylish, up there on the boardwalk on Friday and Saturday of last weekend.
Of course that made for treacherous bike riding conditions, what with all the trazillion people walking and gawking at all those spiffy cars. But, bikes are allowed there until 11:00 AM, and so ride I did.
I can't keep all this fancy car appreciation to myself, so I'll just let you "ride" along and enjoy the views too. Here now, for you, is part of the 2013 Wildwood parade of classic cars.
As we rode past these classic automobiles, I heard my husband muttering to himself, "I would love to have that one" quite a few times.
As for me, I'm just glad I was able to ride. A bike, that is.
It's a lot cheaper that way.
