    Major Bummer

    While my wife is doing a 45 minute Bonk ride
    I'm sitting here, watching my toe turn black. . .
    stubbed it last night, tried to put on the Sidi's this
    morning (even after icing it) but no go.
    So, I read forum, she rides.

    You have my sympathy. I've been banned from exercise since the third for a kidney stone. Last Dr visit is Monday though. Maybe back on the bike Tuesday.

    Lotek, you have my sympathy- I had that knee klonk a while back and it was a bummer to be off the bike. Being off the bike for any reason is a bummer, whether it's a bad cold or a horrible accident! But in some ways, the small, naggy things are worse, because the rest of you is fine. The foot will feel better in a couple of days.
    You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. That's great...if you want to attract vermin.

    Marty - You can hobble across the street and wash my bikes if you get bored. OK, so that was low. Get better soon - Scott

    Oh the old black toe thing. It'll take a couple or three days but you'll be back on it in no time. You do have my sympathy. I was out for nearly 3 weeks from the knee surgery and my legs are gone. It's like starting over.
    Picture yourself on a boat on a river, with tangerine trees and marmalade skies...

    I hear you Ocean Rider. I worked really hard last year to get my climbing legs and I was pretty satisfied. By the end of last summer I was riding up mountains comfortably. Kept riding all winter on trainer but had my back fused in Feb. I finally can get back on my bike and even the little hills are tough again. I'm really frustrated.

    How about open-toed sandals on platform pedals? I use them all the time on my mtn bike.
