Several of you had asked me to keep you posted about my son's recovery from his being broadsided by a pickup truck while riding. I'm pleased to say that I got him back on a bike for the first time and we road 15 miles on a local MUP. He was nervous and confessed that he thought the MUP would be a good idea - he'd be a bit nervous around cars. So, from where I sit, this is a big first step. Oh, one other thing... there is one short 10% climb on this ride that's about a half mile long. He flew up this freaking thing and waited for me at the top - despite not having ridden from some time and still not 100% physically. Youth really is wasted on the young.
