My ride today was 20.1 miles, 1,230 foot gain, top speed 45.8 mph and an average speed of 14.4 mph. It's not much but for me it's my longest ride since I started the double hip replacement process back in late September 2013. It's been eleven weeks since the replacement of my last hip and my strength is coming back faster then expected. I still take it easy on the climbs, grinding up hills puts the most stress on my new titanium hips. I'm back to getting cheap thrills passing DF's on the flats and flying past them on the downhill runs. At 60 years old I'll get my thrills anyway I can.

I love this thing.
|By the end of this month I'll be comfortable putting an extra load|
on my hips and I'll start taking Betzi on rides with my Expedition.
