The pull in my butt muscle or more appropriately gluteus maximus is 80% better. I didn't want to wait any longer to get back out on the road so I hooked Betzi's trailer up to the "beast" (my Catrike Expedition) and away we went. My hind end was still a little sore when I got back from my ride but nothing to cry about. Old muscles just take a little longer to heal.

I did a slow 17 mile ride with a little more then 1,400 feet of elevation gain. If it wasn't for the 1,400+ elevation gain and 115 pounds of trike, trailer and dog a 17 mile ride would feel like a walk in the park.
