I imagine Matt has been off his bike with his surgery.

Matt, if you are reading this, just wanted to send well-wishes your way. Hope you are back on your feet (errr, bike) soon.

Not quite yet. Had several days of rain and several early morning doctor appointments that interfered with riding. Not gonna lie…my legs were fine with taking a few days off!

Many thanks for the well wishes. Surgery is tomorrow morning.
