Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Success, I Ride the Tall Bike on Rollers!

I blame Richard for this one...  I rode the tall bike on my rollers!

I am not sure how or why, but Richard came over and we got to talking bikes.
I was setting up my rollers for my evening workout and the topic of CicLAvia and my tall bike came up. THEN the topic of how do I balance on the rollers. AND THEN one topic lead to another and somehow I decided to try riding the tall bike on the rollers.

I wasn't sure how to mount the tall bike once it was on the rollers but with some quick ingenuity, a cheap plastic chair, and pull up bars and I was ready to go!

I have to admit, I was scared!  It's really high up there and twitchy.  I think with more practice and more confidence, I could ride the rollers longer.  I was too nervous which made it difficult to focus, but I did manage to ride the rollers for a few seconds!

Richard was the cameraman and Jamie was back up in case I fell.
