Warning blastfamy in this thread

Oops blasphemy:

I haven't ridden since Monday and I haven't felt this good in months. No aches, no pains, no cramps. Probably need to ride tomorrow.

Outrageous! Three days without a ride should not be tolerated unless you're injured.

Hey! I'm sick. Thought I was better a week and a half ago and rode 40+ on Wed and 60+ on Friday, because I felt so good. Now, Ive felt really crappy for a week. I hope by Monday to be back riding. But I won't go if it doesn't "feel" right.

I think the OP is pushing too hard. A week away from riding should leave one longing to ride, not luxuriating in the absence of pain. Take it easy, enjoy the ride.

So where's the blasphemy? Or did that part get transferred to R&P? I was hoping to see the Spanish Inquistion.

I am in the same condition but with a genuine reason but just had a week off riding with a back problem and tried the bike yesterday. May be a while before I can ride again.

But I thought this was something serious like giving up PIE.

and while on Pie--Not long till the


Annual Pie Ride.
