Back in the saddle again

It was only a short, easy spin of 12 miles, but it was significant.

I've been riding up to 3 hours at a stretch in the Pain Cave, so I'm slowly returning. But yesterday was my first ride outside since the surgery. While driving home the shop, I surveyed the roads. I realized that most were clear and dry, with just an occasional puddle. Most important - no black ice. So I hurried to get my kit on, turned on the Garmin, and walked my bike to the end of the driveway.

There is nothing like the first spring ride outdoors. Especially when you can look an old demon straight in the eye and ride away with a smile on your face.

This would be a ride to remember.
It was only a short, easy spin of 12 miles, but it was significant.
God is good.
