Over the summer, I rode when I could, but I soon got tired and slow. When I was at my most rundown and my race bike was in for major surgery, I bailed on a 50 mile race. I was just starting to get some good training in the few weeks before I damaged myself.
I was hoping to just be a mechanic for the summer so I could become more efficient, C'est la vie.
While everything did not quite go according to plan, I am happy about many things too.
Tammy has been walking or riding her bike as regularly as life would allow.
Tammy has started to learn to use exercise to help balance stress.
Tammy is proving doctors wrong by still being alive and not in constant pain!
Kim Fury got back on the bike.
Kim let me show her some handling techniques.
I got to ride with many from my Jersey crew, Tom, Rich,Tommy, Jorge, Igor,, Ryan, Kris, George b., Njck, Eric, Dom, Morgan, Blane, DR J, Doug and for the first time in many years Brendan and many others.
