- Not too hot or cold
Too bad my body is wracked by aches and illness so I can’t enjoy it by pedaling like a bullet.
But taking it easy is fine, too. I suspect I need my chain tightened; from now on I’m taking it to the bike shop, as things get ugly when I try to muck around “under the hood” myself.
My poor joints and back need a babying, furthermore. Degenerative disc disease or arthritis in lower spine — different docs have told me different things — sucks. It’s why I don’t squat nor deadlift anymore. But oh well. It’ll just take me longer to go from zero to one, like with everything else.
