I am scheduled to ride in the "Peach Pedal" , a ride in Weatherford, Texas. This ride is in preparation for the Hottern' Hell Hundred in late August. Motel reservations made for my wife and I along with my riding partner and his wife. However, I woke up this morning with my whole world going around and around. I could not get my balance and could not find a good position to hold my head. I was a bit frightened.
My wife took me to the doctor's office. Could not see my regular doctor, but did get in to see one. He said it was an inner ear viral infection. It would be OK in a few days, maybe a week. He said the infection would not be affected by me riding, but a crash due to a lack of balance might hurt. I am staying home. What a way to miss a ride.
