Bicycle Diaries

30 years riding, 15 years writing

Oh my aching back

Threw out my back working on the house.

Spent the week hunched over like that guy from Notre Dame, all I needed was the protruding hump. But today I had to get out, no matter what pain I felt.

Surprisingly the ride did me good, I feel much better now, though I’m cramping all over. The McAlpine is still in need of weir bridges, but hey at least there’s gravel on the trails instead of asphalt.

Even though I got out late today, there was a lot of people out there taking their afternoon walks. The bike bell was working overtime, on your left.

distance 14.9 miles, average speed 13.4 mph.
