I have a long history of knee dysfunction, and it struck again about three weeks ago. I had to take a little break from the bike, but I've spent the last week building up the miles, and started commuting again today! Getting buzzed, honked at, and rained on didn't even faze me, and my Turbodog tastes even sweeter than usual! hooray for bikes!

(I needed to share with some folks who'd understand, my roommate just doesn't get it...)

Welcome back. Nothing starts off my day better than a bike ride.

A day without bike commuting is like a day without sunlight, oxygen, or a smile from a loved one.

Welcome back!

I know how you feel...I have the same problem with my left knee and it started acting up again this summer to the point where I finally had to take a few weeks off the bike myself back in September. My gawd, I hope there wasn't something in the water!

Welcome back.
