Easing back

Took my first ride since the fall today -- not counting a few quick laps around the block. I went about 10 miles and took it nice and easy. Just cruised along the bike trail to Discovery Park and hung out by the river for a few before heading back.

My shoulder felt fine. I wouldn't want to do a lot of off-road stuff just yet, but road cycling wasn't a problem with the swept-back handlebars on Blaise.

It was good to be back out there. The weather has been perfect for the last couple of weeks and it was driving me crazy to know that it's likely to be cold and rainy by the time I'm fully back in action. At least today I caught some of the autumn sunshine and leaves.

I think Blaise was happy to be back out there too... don't you think?


  1. Glad to read that you are recovering. Enjoy your rides and be careful with them poles and things!

  2. Thank you, Filigree! I think it's safe to say it was a very careful ride. It's funny what the vivid memory of a fall will do to your imagination. Still, forward!

  3. Good to see you back in the saddle. Looking forward to getting over to the LBS with you.
