I survived a 6 mile bike ride

At the risk of sounding like a weenie, I survived a 6 mile bike ride. It has been over one year since my last bike ride. Naturally, some muscles have atrophied and lost their endurance.

'Twas only 6 miles to go pick up a client check. 98 degree weather. I made it without serious burning or heart pounding.

Even with the certain soreness tomorrow, things seem positive for resuming my bike rides. Typically, I used to ride 10 to 20 miles through trails. Would be interesting to ride longer distances; but I only have so much time to dedicate.

Will need new handle grips, gloves, and water bottle cage. Bike could use a chain cleaning. It was filthy from storage. Maybe a new seat.
