hi good to hear form you again ,yes I do get arround a lot for a guy in my shape but that is exactly why i do it. i am amoung other things promoting the fact that THERE IS LIFE AFTER BACK SURGERY, although its a bit diferant. there is a long list of things I can no longer do, Biking is one of the things I still do. I take it to the limet. Pushing and living on the edge. Some people give up on them selves when the life takes an ability away. When we all look arround a bit, no matter how bad we have it, or think we have it there is allways someone that is just a little bit worse off then we are.
Like Ive said earlier I have a Dr. that refuses to give up on me, or let me degenerate by sitting and sulking, he encourages me to stay on the bike and keep going.
i am a whole lot slower than i should be at the young age of 49&1/2 but I can still make the pedals go round and round and eventually get to where I am headed. yea Its all good out here!!
