Seafoam rides again!

Well...September 30th, seafoam managed two miles on the Sirrus. Today she did nearly six on the Bianchi. No wonder I've been down....and my mileage has been down... Looks like I will soon have my riding partner back!

Good luck. It is a lot nicer riding with people you really like.

It was interesting that her knee seemed to respond better to the Bianchi road bike than to the Sirrus hybrid. I will have keep an eye on her!

You ought to feel lucky- Most partners in a marriage- if they have a medical problem or Injury try to hang it out for as long as possible before getting back to the normalities of life- like gardening- washing up- doing the ironing etc. Or is that just the men.

By the way- Dauphin- your avatar has got me worried- I am new to road riding and when I saw your new avatar- It is a bit small to really see with poor eyesight- I thought that you had a Big black cloud hanging over your head. Then realised tonight that the sun is just poking through. Pass on the good wishes to Seafoam, but remind her that she is supposed to be behind you- Got it!! get a Tandem. Can see that this will be the only way to keep in front of her.
