    Back after my first extended lay off

    After 4 years of steady riding, I took my first extended lay off this winter. I took almost 3 months off after Thanksgiving until last week. My first ride back was a commute. Probably a mistake.....I forgot about the sore arse thing. The ride in was great, but painful on the way home. Since then I've done two 20 milers.

    The lay off was good. I think I needed it because I was feeling burned out on the bike. Problem is that I gained 10 pounds. The weight should drop quickly as soon as I start doing longer rides.

    Oh well......it's great to be back in the saddle!! And back on BF!!

    Welcome back and good start already

    yes sore arse is not a fun way to send the day....... shaking my head as i type that
    Tact is for people who arenít witty enough to use sarcasm.

    Early helplessness is the price we pay for later brilliance. Or, at least our later capacity for non-idiocy
