It's actually rather difficult to ride in the house. It certainly is difficult to build up much speed or log any actual milage.
The ride might have worked better if I would have:
- taken off my tap shoes (I'd been practicing tap and wanted to keep practicing after my "ride" so kept them on).
- made sure there wasn't any mud left on my big ol' tires from my last ride.
- moved some furniture out of the way.
Here's my ride report:
- the "ride" was short and rather erratic (pedal, stop, move stuff, walk, pedal etc.).
- Tap shoes don't work well on metal pedals. Absolutely no traction.
- I had to vacuum a lot of mud off the floor when my ride was done.
- I laughed
When all was said and done, I took off my tap shoes, put on a rain jacket and some puddle boots and rode Bear outside in the rain for about a tenth of a mile. It wasn't bad.
Now I'm wondering if I should have brought Bear upstairs and tried riding down the stairs. Probably not.
