I can’t remember the last time I rode my bike, but it feels like forever since the last time I did. The weather has been really crappy the last few months, it’s been snowing, raining, and just to cold. Finally the weather has gotten better! Without the obstacle of the harsh weather I have been able to ride. I will admit when I first rode I was really excited, but I felt a bit rusty. I have not rode in a while so I just cruised around getting back in the rhythm of things. After that much desired ride I knew I would be back in business soon.
I went riding with my friend Gavin for the first time in forever! He got a penny board for christmas and we rode around town with the new board. A penny board is mainly for cruising, the board itself is small and the wheels are big for more speed. Unlike a regular skateboard a penny board is really easy to turn, the downside to this is you can’t do any tricks on it. Well you can but you’re very limited.
It was a good day, I got my rhythm back and was able to do little tricks here and there. We mainly rode around Mariemont and Fairfax. We took turns riding his penny board, it took me a while to get use to it. It felt so different from a regular skateboard it was so strange but at the same time it was awesome because I had so much control. We ended the day with our goodbyes and fist bump.
