    Back on the Bike, at last!

    Last month I fractured my arm and haven't been on the bike since. Today I took my first ride since the accident. My sister, my son and I rented bikes in Central Park, NYC. No discomfort at all, just the thrill of riding again. We had so much fun!

    You look like fun... well, like you are having fun, er... well, you know what I mean.
    Aren't bikes great?!

    Yes, I did, Bev. This weekend, my son gave us a walking tour over most of Manhattan, literally miles and miles! My feet are covered in blisters,and by today, the only thing I could wear were flip-flops!

    Lookin' good!
    Rumor has it that Lance is planning to return to the TDF next year and will be riding a bike just like that!

    Have fun and be reasonably careful.

    You kid, but as the owner of a succession of TREKs, I took it as good sign the vendor was leasing TREKS! Funny thing happened, shortly after this ride, I got a text from my son in Philadelphia, informing me that HE just got a text from one of his buddies that read, "I just saw your mom ride by me on a bike in Central Park!" Small world!

    That's why I've taken to wearing a gorilla suit whenever I'm away from home.

    Great news. I'd hate to see anyone lose the whole summer's riding to an injury. That would just plain suck.

    Good for you. I can relate since my wife and I did fifteen miles last weekend 7 weeks after she broke her shoulder. She was grinning ear to ear the whole time. Which arm did you break?

    Looking good, Miss K! Glad you had such a good time getting back on a bike.
    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.
