I'm afraid on my new bike.
I have 55 miles scheduled for this Sunday and I'm worried. I'm worried about falling over. I'm worried about making turns. I'm worried about not being able to clip out in time. I'm worried about flatting.
I feel so much more vulnerable on this bike than my dad's hybrid. I feel like all my confidence is gone. Is this normal when transitioning from hybrid to road bike? How long until I feel like myself?
It seems crazy to even consider riding my old bike for my long ride this week. I need to get used to this new bike. *sigh*
(p.s. I hate being a wimp.)
