Even though Josh hasn't rode a bicycle in YEARS he still thought it was a great idea to ride a bicycle to work.
Yesterday, before the trial run,  he was looking up new bicycles online.
He told me that they can get pretty expensive and range all the way up to 1200.
He also told me to cancel the insurance on his truck and that we need to look at getting a bike rack put on my truck.
Before we did anything or spent any money on his amazing idea I borrowed a bike from a coworker so he could test out how great his theory was going to work.

Yesterday he did a trial run.

He told me he was going to ride to the Shell gas station and back.
From our house he left and headed toward the Shell gas station. I gave him a good 2 minute head start and then thought it would be a great idea to follow him and take some pictures.

Just as I pulled out on the highway I noticed he was heading toward me, back home.
He rode .4 of a mile.
I turned around and followed him home.

When I got home he told me that he thought he was going to die and that his legs felt like jello.

I didn't remind him that Rilyn rode her bike on the walking trail at the park for a mile straight.
I could tell he was hurting, physically. So i told him to go relax.

Only a real man admits defeat.

My Josh is a real man. :)
