As many of you know, I had an extreme amount of pain after riding this past year. So, I did the MRI bit (found I had a bulging disk and spondolythesis), the Neurosurgeon thingie (x's 2), the Physiatrist consult, a whole bunch of PT and home exercises and a major rework of my Lemond BA, including extended stem and other stuff.
So, finally, after my vacation, terrible weather, etc., I have been able to get out for some 20 - 25 mile rides the last couple of days. So far, things are working OK. The bike feels a lot better, and I won't be getting a new bike as long as the Lemond keeps working. I get more compliments on that bike!!
Anyway, that is the end of my ride report!! Ha - I bet you thought you were going to get a lot of pictures, etc., and a description of a 200 mile double century done in 7 hours. No such luck. If I can do 20-25 miles daily - or near daily - I will be most happy, and I don't care a hoot about how long it takes me.
Lesson learned - when you are getting into your 70's - and are riding a bike that was fitted in your late 50's - it is time to get a checkup on your bike fit. You SHRINK!!
