It’s been almost 10 years since I rode a bicycle; mainly because it wasn’t my favorite activity growing up. Although I used to race my friends to the finish line, with time I had forgotten how to ride a bicycle. The closest thing I did to riding was watching the “Tour De France”; only because France’s landscape appealed to me.
Last Sunday, I decided to give it a shot again. I borrowed my neighbor’s bicycle. It has been gathering dust in the basement of our building. I struggled to keep balance, but that didn’t keep me from enjoying the great scenery of my hometown. The terrain was steep indeed.
A week later, I went cycling with my friends. We had to ride up a very sharp hill. To be fair, they did warn me. Eventually, with their help, I managed to reach the top and gaze at the beautiful scenery of the Mediterranean Sea surrounding Beirut City.
