I have considered all of that! Truth be told, hanging up the bikes SAVES money. Counseling, vaping, and weed all seem like expensive ways to medicate a problem that you just need to quit and find a safer physical activity you may like as much, or nearly so. Kinda like getting a nasty saddle sore. You can hand money over to the dermatologist, druggist, saddle manufacturers, bike short designers, and bike-fit gurus if you want, but taking some time away from bikes would serve the same purpose and cost ZERO dollars.

Remember HeeHaw?

Patient: "Doc, it hurts when I do this"

Doctor: Then DON'T DO THAT!

Sometimes it is just that simple.
