Well, we aren't much about being "positive " here, except about being absolutely positive about things regarding which we are factually wrong .... but we will try to at least be kind until you feel art home .....

I didn't ride yeste4rdfay because just as I was going out i got a phone call about a possible problem at a rental property .... by the time I haver calmed that situation, it was too late and I was too drained to ride. Plan to go out early-ish this morning to get those essential 15 miles I missed.

At the pace I ride, 15 miles is a serious investment of time. But hopefully I will get out there before the serious heat builds up.

3.25 miles! First ride since my fall two weeks ago. Just fairly level ground so I could keep it under 200 watts. My instructions are to ride short distances without pain. Mission accomplished. 😊 I hope to do a little more each day.

120km, because I was late, and my wife was mad af....otherwise it'd have been more like 135. It was the Groene Gordelroute around Brussels, ran into the Brussels Cycling Classic, UCI Pro race. Pretty legit. The phots are of the break, I video'd the peloton that cam by about 90 seconds later.

Increased to 5.5 miles this morning and with a faster pace plus a few bits of standing. A bit of a twinge the first time, but not enough to be a problem. And I didnít have to put extra gears on, Iím able to manage it SS. Thatís encouraging. 😊

Thanks! So far I am making good progress. At this point it doesnít even appear that I will need to install multiple gears for rehab purposes. 👍

Had a beautiful ride this morning - nice and cool for the first time in quite a while.




It was overcast so I finally got a chance to try out the black background on the new Karoo - the display on this thing is really something

17 miles! First normal ride since I took a tumble two and a half weeks ago. My hip didnít hurt at all for most of the ride and only a few twinges on the climbs at the end of the ride. 👍
