    first longish ride in 1.25yrs

    http://www.mapmyride.com/workout/523...ref_map=%5B%5D
    as some may have read in my other post. I have been out of the saddle for over a year. I severed my acl, lcl, detatched a few muscles and squished my peroneal nerve. I had 2 surgeries and a lot of PT. Well it was a beautiful day today and i figured id exploite it so i knocked out a 24mi ride and made a few stops alongvthe way. Im pretty impressed with the overall speed as there was quite a few stops for this and that. Now im saddle sore and need to get some padded shorts/underwear. 400lbs on any saddle is a bit uncomfy lol so ill def be looking into some chamois cream and pads. It was also nice to break in my new specialized. I ts alot more comfy bike with kenda kross's and riser stem/bar

    If it's any comfort, 220 is not particularly comfortable on a saddle either. Give your butt time to re-acclimate but yes, get some cycling shorts.

    Ouch, your injuries give me the heebie jeebies. I have personally designated 2014 the Year of No Surgeries (for me.) here's wishing the same for you.

    Meh, I was 240 not very long ago. The trick is getting (and staying) under 220 and ultimately 200. I haven't seen a one and a 9 at the same time on the scale since I was in my 20s. Ahem.
