About a month ago I wrote about my decision to buy a bike in this post. I now own a second hand bike and can manage to ride about 3k. One of my aims is to build up my stamina to ride 6.5k to a caravan park that is just out of town. It apparently has a shop/cafe where they sell scones and jam and cream which seems a just reward after riding 6.5k! Of course then the aim is ride home again. So it is a matter of consistently riding a little bit further every couple of days.
Many things in life come down to doing little things often. Proverbs 6:6 tells us to “Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise!” Ants don’t get discouraged by their size, or the size of the task. They do small tasks and do them often and it gets the job done. Likewise we need to be persistent in doing the small tasks because they eventually add up.
Watch this space and I’ll let you know how I get on with the bike riding…
