Agent Orange Time!

I've owned Agent Orange, my new mountain bike, exactly one week today, and considering I haven't been on a bike in about two years, I have been going on short rides to ride myself back into cycling shape. It's not just your lungs and legs, but your hands, wrists, shoulders, neck, and your butt all need to get used to riding again. I went eight miles yesterday, and took the first of many "Bike Lean" photos, which are pictures people take of their bikes leaning on stuff. This particular lean is of Agent Orange leaning on a mural of MC Hammer, which was painted on the wall of a motorcycle repair shop here in Denver. Hammer Time!

Nice brother, my brother bought a Mountain Bike not to long ago, said he rode like 25 miles and I believe him. Told me where he went and have to admit that is some steep hills on top of 25 miles. Now is a great time for that kind of activity. Does indeed sound and look fun. Hope you have a good time with new Agent Orange.

I'm not quite back in 25-mile ride shape yet. That was only my fourth ride in the week I've had the bike. But I love 25 milers!

@crossbones27 - It's a ton of fun. Especially when you get to do some actual mountain biking.

If I find a mural of Freddie, you know I'm taking a picture!

I remember how sore my butt used to be when I took long rides. Now it is sore after 5000 meters on the rowing machine. By the time I get to 8000 I am seriously squirming.

I was doing a rowing machine at this little gym that does a weekly class for us vets. But they haven't opened back up yet, and when they do, I'll probably wait back awhile to see what happens with phase II.

Agent Orange. The orange color fits in well into the painting

Nice street art/graffiti/whatever. I'm sure you're enjoying riding a bike again.

Are you sore or are your muscles saying, “Yeah, man, I remember this!!!”?

A bit of both. Muscle memory, but still a little sore. I definitely realized that I missed it.
