Are first dates always so awkward?

So this guy asked me to go biking with him, so we set up a meeting place. the first like 20min were so awkward. we biked through a trail, and the trail was nice but the atmosphere just felt so weird. after that though it was more relaxing and conversations flowed more nicely. but I don't know why it was just so weird at first. when we were saying bye it was also a bit weird. tried giving hugs but we were still on our bikes so that was a bad idea. but he said he wanted to go biking again.

is it normal that is was so weird at first, and should I go biking with him again?
