So last week Doc cleared me to start riding my bike instead of just the tandem. Yay! Off the trainer at last... or so I thought. Alas the weather had other ideas, and TS Bill came to visit and bring lots more rain to NTX.
Finally, by Saturday I opted to go riding, though I skipped the regular Java ride with the bike shop bunch. Sticking relatively close to home, in case the shoulder gave me any problems, I set out.
Things took a couple minutes to settle in, having to balance and steer, but except for some tenderness in the shoulder if I hit a rough patch in the road, the ride was pleasantly uneventful.
