I was all stoked about getting the Schwinn back in working order to ride. However…

I am NOT in working order and ready to ride. My adductors, in my left leg particularly are more than a little inflexible. These muscles are not stretched out; swimming seems to make no difference. I discovered this when trying to mount the bike.  I got my leg over the bike, but took a tumble before we had a chance to adjust the saddle height. Balance issues too. 

They say one never forgets how to ride a bike. “They” don’t say anything about getting on one in the first place.
