I am a novice in cycling and no way can I race @The.Black.Templar or @Meria Mata. Just yesterday I went to visit a friend in Kasarani and cycled all the way from South C and back and felt very tired and as weak as a soggy biscuit. Needless to mention I struggled to climb hills and it was all fatigue upon fatigue. I am still collecting bike accessories and already got myself a helmet, lock and a hi-vi jersey just to stay safe. I am yet to purchase a speedo and a few more stuff that will make cycling safer and hopefully easier. I see cyclists often weave past Paradisos, Ummoinners and FTs and even take upon them on roundabouts (something I can't dare no matter the amount of training/practice it takes) and I am left wondering if I am cut for cycling on these streets. I am better off cycling on bicycle tracks where there is limited traffic but I only know of one..the Karura forest...Anyone who knows other cycling tracks especially near my area? I would wish to sample. Mbisha ya cheki maneno ndio hio hapo chini.
1. Descending stairs hapo railways on my way to Kasarani.

2. Decided to visit the Gardencity-mall bike shops while catching some breath so I packed my bike on the rails.

Hahaha don't you worry, after a few more rounds, you gonna start getting used to hill climbing.....I remember once going to kiambu looking for the racing track and after doing a certain hill, I felt like I was gonna pass out, was panting on all three pistons, was sweating buckets, and I had to remove my tshirt to let some air through. I had to lie down on the grass on the side of the road.

I don't know south c much so I can't help you there lakini something I
have noticed....while in karura, there air there is so clean, the fatigue I have collected on my way there always ends immediately....

Get a water bottle buddy...its very important to hydrate yourself!

Eehh lakini si ulijaribu, south c to kasarani and back? How long did that take you?

@ Mkufu ,,how much dd that bike go for and where can i purchase ??
Bought this bike at Nairobi Sports House for Ksh 23,500 about a month ago. the bike was on offer, actual price is 30K. If want a bike go to garden city check out the game supermarket, a bike shop at the ground floor and the Nairobi Sports House. Then compare the prices with those of bikes in the second-hand market and make a decision. Halafu weka mbisha hapa and join team cheki maneno.

those bikers who hold on to the backside of a truck and roll with it are crazy. you should do that next time you are tired. grab one homegrown truck heading to airport ikisindikishe hadi ole sereni
