It was bound to happen sooner or later but last weekend it finally did: I fell off my bike.
This was a comical fall (aren’t they all?)!
I was pedalling on the grassy dike in Pemberton, with Sarah and Anita, when I decided that Sarah should get in front of me. Well, I have horrible depth perception and realized I had to stop to avoid crashing. I didn’t crash into her. Phew! I went to put my left foot on the ground but there was no ground so me, myself and Spike the Bike flipped down the grassy hill. I think I did a 360.
It was funny and I was laughing. I was only sore for a few days and was left with only a funny memory. Spike is feeling okay, too.
So, it got me thinking. Is there a proper way to fall? Let’s see what Biker Fox has to say:
Oh, and I got a sexy new Specialized helmet from Fanatyko (which I will never NOT wear again).
Summer is here and I’m learning to bike (better), fish and other Pemberton activities. Follow me on my journey. Check back every Wednesday (ish) to see what I have been up to.
Today I learned how to plant herbs. It was easy….take the plant out of the plastic holder thing and then loosen the rots and put in mud.
Green thumb. Mud. Fun.
Along the way to patio drinks I met some new neighbours. Moooo!
One of my favourite routes to bike along is in The Meadows with Tara and Blanche. This is what it looks like:
Where do you like to ride?
Well, I’m at a point in year where I can choose to participate in summer activities or winter activities. This weekends dilemma was “Do I ski?” or “Do I go fishing?”
You see, I like skiing, I do. To me, it is a winter activity and should be done in the winter. Fishing is a summer activity and I am a sun goddess who soaks in every drop of D she can.
With that being said, Sunday was not sunny but we went fishing anyways! Shayne and I packed up the truck, loaded the canoe and away we went.
We arrive at Echo Lake after a bumpy dirt road adventure. Echo Lake is at higher elevation so there was still snow on the road.
Shayne and I loaded up with our gear and trekked down to the lake. Shayne carried the canoe and I carried everything else! We spent a few hours on the lake….paddling in the wind. It was fun but it was cold.
Nothing was caught but a lot of beef jerky was eaten. Soon I shall try out my new rod. I’m going to try and ski a few more times this season (even though I’d rather be sunbathing).
I’d show you where Echo Lake is, but I can’t find it on the map. Maybe it is a secret lake?
