    Hip bursitis :(

    Its getting pretty bad here. I'm thinking of taking a week off the bike

    Any advice from fellow foosters who have gone through this would be appreciated.

    If your Doc hasn't suggested therapy, ask for it. You will need to do stretching, and
    the physical therapy should include balancing the strength of your muscles. Spent a whole winter getting physical therapy for my hip several years ago. It was a pain in the butt, literally and metaphorically.
    Might be time to take up Yoga...

    I have to tell you, I love this stuff...

    You should stay off the bike for a while and let your body heal, IMHO.
