    What's really really really really really good?

    Doc sez my fractured elbow is healing nicely, so my 7 weeks of moping around on foot and stuffing myself into the subway while happy, laughing, bicycle-riding people pass are over...tonight.

    Woo hoo!
    give me war redder than blood and fiercer than fire!

    All I can say is don't fall... you haven't ridden a while - take it easy... all of these stories about crashing on the first day of a new bike, it's the same thing. Otherwise have an awesome time, congrats

    Bummer. Fractured my elbow about 18 months ago & was off the bike for 9 weeks, incl. a few where my girl had to tie my shoes for me because my hilariously inoperable wrist. Heal well.
    It's a broken record, but it's a good record.

    congrats, boots. It'll be good to have you back on the streets.


    BTW, I think there should be a "boot's blog" subforum here. I love your stories.

    +1 on the be careful. The day I took my sling off in november I broke my hand. It was just the pinky metacarpal and I didn't want to get anymore doctor's orders so I just winced it off.

    word, I was wondering how you were doing after that. haha they thought the checkpoint dude was being an ******* cause while you were on the ground I asked him who had the stamp and he yelled "Someone get me a stamp right here!" into the crowd. Nice riding with you with my badly cramped left leg hahaha.

    I feel ya. I ruptured my Achilles Tendon hooping in February. I haven't been on a bike since. While I've been rehabing (and getting fatter), I've been building a new bike. The doc cleared me to ride last week. My bike might be ready this weekend. We'll see if my leg is up for fixie riding or not.
