Since I had not climbed the hill of the Cape Fear River Trail since June 5, 2013, with Brian Gaskell, I knew it important establish I can with my road bike. I will be a GREAT challenge to do so on a single speed bike. Anyway, this morning’s ride after I lifted weights at the Tokay Fitness Center.
Moses Mathis worked hard for 22 years to put smiles on the faces of Fayetteville, North Carolina, children by providing free bicycles to them at Christmas time.
Over the years, he became known as the “Bicycle Man.” Since he started the program in his Tiffany Pines neighborhood in 1990, Mathis and his team of volunteers refurbished and distributed some 26,000 bicycles.
Another ride in the bank. I tried the 2nd hill at mile 6. For now, it is too steep to ride seated on this single speed with its gearing. Riding standing is more difficult on a crank forward bike. Anyway, I rode a longer distance in a shorter period than yesterday’s ride. I plan to ride again Tuesday & Thursday. Tomorrow, I may walk to the gym.
