Easy Rides For Now

Yep...I'm riding but not pushing hard. Just taking easy rides on the flats. It's been two months since my right hip replacement. I'm still working on getting strong and working past the aches and pains that linger. It's hard to get motivated to push hard since I'll be having my left hip replaced on December 23rd. It's three days after my 60th birthday and right before Christmas. Happy birthday, Marry Christmas, Happy Holidays and whatever else. 
After December 23rd the hips will be done and then it'll be time to kick recovery into gear. For now I'm just enjoying the ride and trying to keep myself in reasonable shape.

Ahhh... the 700. It's light, fast and easy on the hips.

Another Saturday Morning at Cheeseboro

Perfect trik'n country.
Almost every Saturday morning I spend my time as a National Park Service Volunteer at Cheeseboro Canyon. The Canyon has a great system of fire roads, perfect for a suspended trike...if I had one. Soon?
7 in the morning and I just opened the gate to the parking area. I'm the first one in. Nice!

My humble post.

Inaugural TransAm Bike Race

Adventure Cycling's inaugural TransAm Bike Race. Now this is a race, unsupported, only what you can carry or pick up from local businesses along the way. It should be fun to follow. The roster for the event doesn't say what the resgistered riders will be riding. Hopefully there'll be a recumbent or two.

Road ID eCrumb

My second ride since my right hip replacement. RoadID's eCrumb provides proof of my whooping 3.9 mile ride. I've been doing a lot of spinning in the garage, it's good to feel the wind in my face.

The RoadID eCrumb is a nice, simple and free tracking app.
