For some time, I’ve been shopping around for a bike. Actually, I already saw one that I like with a tag of P15,000 ($320), but I had second thought. I’d like to determine first whether this exercise is for me or not before buying a better and expensive unit. So, I let a night passed and thought it over. When I woke up the following morning, I decided on buying the low end unit only. Should I decide not to continue biking or upgrade the bike to a high end unit, I would just give or donate this bike away; and, it wouldn’t break my heart.
I went to the nearest bicycle store and chose a unit. Its tag was P3,000; but, I was able to bargain at P2,600. It looks like a mountain bike with 24 gears but no suspensions.
First, I named my bike as “BikePot”. Then, I rode it to try on how the gears work. It’s the first time I used a bike with gears. It’s been a long long time since I last rode a bike. He he he . . .
Yesterday afternoon, I broke in my BikePot around UP Diliman Academic Oval. It's working good, so far!
Offhand, I think I would love this exercise. But, I’d keep walking as my other exercise.
