I miss riding my bike

I am on my third week out of having a total knee replacement and doing well, though I miss riding my bike. I am able to spin the wheels of the bike while it is on a trainer but it is not the same thing as outside riding. I am able to walk really well which I have not been able to do for many years. I am looking forward to getting back to riding in a few more weeks.

You picked a good time of year to get it done. The good riding weather should show up just in time for your rehab to start.
Hope you heal quickly.

Best wishes on a complete recovery and then many happy, pain free miles. Listen to the doctors and PT people on the recovery time and procedures, hurrying things and getting a problem will really suck after all yoou have done.

While not riding outdoors can be frustrating, you are fortunate in being able to ride the trainer 3 weeks after major surgery. As Bill said, take you time with recovery so as not to cause further injury or problems. That is hard to do sometimes, but very important. Good luck with recovery.
