Two miles!

Oh, how the mighty have fallen! From a summer max. ride of 400k down to 2 miles inside on my rollers.

But, the good news is that it's a start! Finally back on the bike after a rough summer brevet series and my associated surgery, and even though it's only 2 miles, I'm glad to be riding again.
I'm gonna ride another 2 miles tomorrow.

Did you time it? I'm reliably informed that it doesn't count otherwise. :-)

Seriously, welcome back! Welcome back to Awesome!

Welcome back!

I've never ridden rollers, but I understand it does require some skill.

Oh 2 miles you must be a noob rider. Let me just tell YOU WHAT you MUST do. Start out...blah blah blah.

Glad you are back on your bike. Maybe you can make 2.5 miles by hanging a piece of Halloween candy out infront of you as your carrot.

Finally, you can put all this silliness behind you. Ok sorry about that one.

Back in the saddle again. That's a good start.

Surgery will do that to you, so climb back onto those rollers and do it again, today.

I lost most of October due to moving, got one bike set up on the trainer, in the man cave, it's not a true man cave, no TV, but it does have a computer and a bike on a trainer, so I'm happy with it until spring. I should point the bike toward the computer screen and ride to some of Beanz' videos....

Good to hear you're back at it. Don't be in a rush and do too much too soon.
