My Bike Ride is a BUST.....

.....literally. I'm not sure what happened but my exercise bike just froze up. Won't pedal. Won't do anything. Hut, the big "he man" that he is, can't seem to figure it out either. Could explain why it was only $10 at a yard sale. Such a deal. So I'm sorry everyone, but the bike ride is off. Not that I was really good about riding consistently but at least I got on it every once in awhile. Guess I'll have to pull out the old "torture device", the glider. We'll have to see. Or maybe I'll get lucky and one of my kids can figure out what's wrong with the bike. Anyways, I'm off to the kitchen to have some Minestrone soup and then on to the couch to watch DWTS (one of hubby's favs, I'll probably have my nose in a book). And then hopefully I can sneak into his room to watch the season premiere of NCIS. Have a great night.

Of course cheap exercise bike will trouble a lot. With there less features they cannot give perfect workouts. So proper care must be taken while purchasing a exercise bike for individual workouts. These bikes are very convenient in the sense that they can be used anytime and under any weather conditions in the comfort of your home and achieve the same benefits. You can get more information about exercise bike which I browsed on internet can fetch you help.

Sorry you had to cancel the bike trip Bonnie, I was so looking forward to your "visit"...maybe a walking tour would work? Good luck with whatever you decide on...YOU CAN DO IT!

Bonnie, sorry to hear your exercise bike isn't working ... maybe you can find another one if you want to. Is that store "Play It Again Sports" still over there on Cypress Gardens Boulevard? They might have something.

Oh wow..I am sorry it it causinng trouble. My Mom got one at a garage sale years ago for 5 bucks. It is still going which is unbelieveable. Wish I could pass it on to you now...
I was hoping you would be riding through Ohio so I could fix you dinner!

When I ride my exercise bike my husband says, "I'm glad you're not peddling your ass all over town."

I got mine at a yardsale for $15.00 and it works quite well. Must be the higher price. Venture out any weekend to the flea markets and yardsales and I'm betting you'll find another exercise bike.

I'm getting to work on pictures.
