I got a new bike today!!
Now I'm sure most of you are wondering, how does one ride a bike with the artificial heart?
Well, I have been going to cardiac rehabilitation for a few months now, I have improved significantly and I want to! I have my backpack with my controller, batteries, pager and cell phone. And I have my spare parts in a pouch attached to my bike seat. I have it all set up.
I would like to send a big BIG thank you to my parents. I would not be riding or pushing myself this way without their love and support.
I decided on a Rocky Mountain Fusion. Designed and tested in Canada. I like to call it Mango in colour with lots of other designs and colours. It's got great components and hydraulic disk brakes. I had narrowed down my decision to a different Rocky Mountain and I was convinced into trying this one.... well it certainly hit my sweet spot.... It just felt so good! Even the pedals and the way the chain sounded. I was sold within minutes.
My Dad is an avid bike rider and he has a Rocky Mountain as well. I'm proud to match! His bike is named Rocky. So mine is rightfully named Rockette. Here she is.
I went on my first bike ride since before May 2008 with the whole family! It was great! I certainly felt that I was working, but I didn't feel like I was doing something I shouldn't have done. Progress!
