Valérie did not hesitate to wet her t-shirt for you!

 

Often, I have been told about the benefits of Aquabiking but I was not keen on the idea of this activity in a pool. So, when Florence I try a session at sea, it immediately tempted me.

The activity is proposed by "Aquabike06" the Aquabike by Fl'eau and is practiced, open air, or should I say rather, in at sea, at the Yacht Club on the Marina of Beaulieu-sur-Mer. When I arrive at the Yacht Club, Lori greets me and directs me to the cloakroom so that I put on my "Combat" outfit! I cannot say that I am a greats port enthusiast but I am ready to pedal and give myself completely for 45 minutes.

Today we are a group of 5 people and I am pleasantly surprised; it's nice, practical, comfortable; I do not like being large groups!

Our charming swimming instructor gives each a bike that we take down into the water. The site where the session is held is protected and delimited by a line of buoys; it's reassuring.

Get set ... start biking! We begin the warm-up, to music of course, gradually the pace increases ... I intensify the pedaling, my arms are also solicited by circular motions, forward and back ... I accelerate, I slow down, I stand in the pedals ... my whole body has to work ... What a pleasure, I force and yet I do not feel the effort ... the sea water carries and massages me ... This sport does me good ...

What a revitalizing experience to practice Aquabike at sea! So natural!

At the end of the session, I tidy the bike and go for a shower. After this sustained aquatic effort, I was a little worried that my morning awakening would be accompanied by aches; it was not the case, I was physically fit!
