The last couple of years I have taken up bike riding. I got the bike riding bug resulting from doing physical therapy for my knee replacement surgery two and a half years ago. I was using a stationary bike and listening to music as I did my 20-minute therapy work out to help with my range of motion. I was ready for the next step and decided to take to the streets. Paul let me borrow his mountain bike, so it was a matter of getting on and riding and did not have to go and make a purchase of anything. He even had a helmet that I was able to use. It worked out great in that I could see if I enjoyed biking enough to purchase my own bike that was sized for me and the style of biking that I preferred. I was immediately hooked and would ride as often as my schedule and weather would allow.
