Best bike ride ever! Well sort of, it started out easy. Can still talk and walk. Actually I'm not on a bike, but at our cottage walking on the river through the snow. I can't bike so I need to get a workout in. We're walking around the corner to the big tubing hill. As we get out of our bay we sink in 6 inches into slush, now its becoming a workout. No more talking, breathing in and out the mouth only. After 20 minutes we reach the hill. Carrie gets a snowmobile ride up. I climb the hill with the tube. This will be a workout. Long climb. Just like biking up a tough grade. My breathing is laboured but controlled. I get to the top gasping for air. Now my hearts working. Down we go on the tractor inner tube. On the bike we call it a controlled descent. I think this was an uncontrolled descent. Back on the river for a slush march back to the cottage. By the time I get back I'm feeling good about my workout/walk (bike ride) Well only thing left to do is work out some upper body muscles. I grab a shovel and start on the deck. 3 feet of snow- that should do the trick. 2 hours later I'm done.
