Well, I did what may well be the last ride of the season for me. The weather here in Ohio is turning cold, wet, and wintry. I did a whooping 27 miles, enjoyed myself though sweaty, and layered against the cold. Am glad I went, but it seems that no matter how easy I take it, my knees (both the new and the used) can't seem to handle it. Am very crippled up today with lots of swelling. Total miles (to date) for 2011 are 509 miles - so much for my goal of 1K, but I did get my hip replaced in June, so that ate up a bunch of riding time I guess.
