Cyclist I am Not

Everyone can ride a bike...right?  I mean it all started out on the banana seat with ginormous handle bars bike back in kindergarten or 1st grade?  I was too chicken shit to actually try sooner unlike my sister who was rocking the pink bike with no training wheels (and streamers!) at 4  years old.  show off.  Well after today's little cross training adventure I kinda felt like a loser.  All these super stellar cyclists on their fancy road bikes with their matching outfits kept flying by me.  And me?  I could barely pass people walking their dogs on my Target bike.  It wasn't that long of a ride 9...maybe 10 miles.  Enough to feel like I did something than sit in front of the computer and type out expense reports all day.  The way back felt like I was tied to a wall going no where fast.  At one point one of those super stellar cyclists blocked me in on a narrow part of the path near Fullerton Ave.  I look up to see a girl that had been out running (I presume) had stopped in the middle of the path to mess with her shoe.  Almost took the girl out.  Really she should have moved off the path since it was such a narrow section and at least the first cyclist apologized when he realized what was about to go down. The 2nd guy, yeah, nothing.  I'm happy to report my brakes work :)  I give props to all you du athletes and triathletes.  From now on if I get the urge to bike the lakefront I think I may do it earlier in the day.  It may be safer for me then :)

I really want to get into biking, but I have no idea about the running/cyclist rules of the road. Hopefully you can find a time that works.

I give you props for biking! I know I would have been too scared plus my bike is all rusty and the brakes squeak and that really bothers me!

Yea biking scares me because I'm afraid I'll run into someone and then look like a loser as I go flying off the bike!

Target bike? I've got a Walmart bike. I think that makes me more trashy.
