On long rides, I just stay on the bike at rest stops, and if I dismount, do it sloooooowly. Margaritas aid in this endeavor. Dieting is easy; I often get busy and forget to eat.
Yup, my old neck and shoulder injuries had been doing much better... then I slipped and fell on a patch of ice in March.

And a couple of weeks ago I hoisted up a neighbor who fell... again. This time I screwed up my own lower back and hip, which hadn't given me trouble in years.

Getting old ain't for rookies.
