The End of Tet 2015

 photo Fotor_142466274474867_zpsuvdrvddr.jpgWhat to do on the last day of the Tet one week holiday? Grab the chance to bike a bit. And I mean a bit. We set lofty goals this morning and it got us back to Phu My Bridge. We did make it up the bridge last month, so before we head back to the grind, hubby and I decided to visit it again.

But this time though, we didn’t care much about going anywhere else. May be we’ll do this our monthly thing until we overcome the weary muscles taking us up.

While I on the other hand couldn’t even go down the bridge because I fear about going up again on the other side. SIGH.

How did your Tet holiday go?

    I am contemplating buying a no-gear “fixie” bike. After reading this, I’m having second thoughts. Haha.

      LOL. This was one steep bridge. I think a fixie bike is okay. The Vietnamese who passed us was on one city bike. He was smiling when he saw us but I knew he was sweating. Hahaha.
