I was given permission by my doctor on Thursday to start riding my bike again, but decided to wait one more day. Friday promised to be warmish, getting into the low 80's, and by 9:30 am the air temperature was actually quite pleasant for a late February day so I got out our single bikes, checked the air pressure in the tires and we headed out on a gentle, slow rolling 9 mile round trip bike ride with a late breakfast at Simple Simon's thrown in for good measure. It felt ever so good to be back on my bike, but there was the expected tenderness in my groin area which will, no doubt, be present for the near future.
We arrived at Simple Simon's around 10 am.......TLE got a cup of coffee and a croissant, and I a cup of coffee and a bagel. As we sat outside sipping our coffee and nibbling at our pastries we couldn't help but feel happy that the last 12 days had turned out so well, when it could have turned out so badly.
We arrived back home just before midnight with big grins on our faces.....another day lived well!
Thanks for stopping by!
