    On the Road Again!

    In late August, I crashed. Details are in this thread.

    I've attached a pic of what my knee looked like when I got home from the ER the morning of the crash. I've also attached a pic of my new commuter.

    I started commuting in again last Monday - 4 weeks after the crash. Got 3 days in last week. This week was my last physical therapy session and the therapist discharged me, saying I'd made really rapid progress. Hard work was a big part of that. It feels good to be back on a bike and riding into work. I've even ordered my winter snow tires - they're at the local bike shop waiting for me!

    oh come on. I get it. You smashed your knee with the sledge hammer just to get that fancy new bike.


    in any case, glad you're on the bike and riding again. I hope you're rolling even better than before.

    Glad you're back on the bike...

    ...don't overdue it. Knee injuries suck.
