I’m surprised but glad. Unless one is doing something like mountain biking, bike helmets don’t protect. They aren’t even designed to protect against the most common form of bike injury. I don’t wear one.
Well, I went on my first bike ride of 2009 today. Wow. It was horrible. Here are the stats (sorry…my computer only does metric):
Dist: 23.45 km Ride Time: 1 h 3 min 38 sec Avg. Speed: 22.3 kmph Feb. Dist: 23.45 km Total Dist: 298 km Total Time: 17 hr 13 min
Doing some more math, I barely averaged 13 mph. ARG! I know, I haven’t ridden since Septemberish and have eaten poorly (I’ve gained 10 kg from my low after we arrived). My goal is to get back in shape (where I was 1.5 years ago) and loose some weight (I’d like to weigh between 90 and 95 kg).
