After getting to ride with my grandson Tyler after a rather long respite, I had the chance to ride the tandem with my honey today.
It has been a pretty cold winter this year, and so my wife was a bit put off about riding. Then, about 2 months go, she finally went to the doctor due to a sore foot. Turns out she had a stress fracture. SO, two months in a soft cast and boot. Finally the dr gave her a clean bill of health.
So today we got to go out together. She was a bit concerned about going out after such a long layoff from all forms of exercise, but I assured her that we would take it very easy. We rode with my buddy who was hit back in mid January. He was out for the 5th time since, and his neurologist wanted him to keep the HR below 120. We stayed with him and another guy who didn't want a hammer fest.
It was about 68 at the start, and warmed to the mid 70s by the rides end. We got in a nice leisurely 30 miles.
