Took my bike out with my roommates to La Vie Sportive, a sporting goods store in Quebec City. Ended up buying nothing, but enjoying the ride. I couldn’t quite make it up the steep hill of Côte Bradelard on the way back. I started out in the wrong gear, and this made it impossible to power my way up standing on the bike. The gear was too low. I needed a higher gear. Once off the bike, I didn’t get back up on it until I was up the hill. It actually makes me want to return back there and try it again.
This was my first experience riding in traffic as a biker. I can’t say that I enjoyed that part, but it was still fun riding my bike. My ass is hurting, so I’ll have to get a chamois bib or something like that ASAP. I wanted to get some running clothes and I almost got them, but in the end, they were too expensive for what they were and I knew that I could get way cheaper online. I tried out a lot of things of brands I liked so that I knew my size.
