|Old picture of my bike|
It feels good to be back riding. The memory of October's crash is fading. My legs are still not where I was, even last summer, but that is to be expected after a 6mo layoff. Still, I am seeing improvements after only 2 weeks. Hopefully I can regain speed and endurance more quickly.
Last night's ride was short, only 9.x miles as I wanted to go with DH to pick up a new traditional road bike for his new commuter. He wanted to go to a slightly larger frame (56cm), and our oldest Monkey is tall enough to ride his compact 54cm Giant now. So she inherited it, and our youngest, just inherited Monkey1's nearly new road bike. So all the Monkeys have road bikes now. Easier to find a quality used 56cm, than a used sub-50cm that the kids will likely outgrow.
Just for fun, here is a different look at video from the bikes. This was from the GoPro, mounted to the bike frame.
