My cycling is likely done for the year....I have a major issue with my butt! It seems it decided to imitate a party favor last night. I'll very likely be having surgery in the next couple of days to fix it.

Keep riding, y'all and I'll be popping in of course, the hospital has wireless

Not sure what is wrong, but best of luck with the surgery. Hopefully things will be back to normal once the weather warms up for you.

At least you can hang out and bike vicariously And, you avoid the wind, rain, snow, and drivers who can't deal with any of those.

Seriously, though, hope you get well quickly. I've had this kind of problem and don't envy you one bit.

I hav e no doubt you'll be back riding before the good weather returns, but no hurry. Recover right, as long as you need, and feel better soon.
