Today's 25 mile ride was my first time out since Saturday. Work and weather kept me off the bike but it was a much needed rest for my back and knee. I was a bit apprehensive getting back on the bike after the fall, but we all know you have to get right back up on the horse. I negotiated most of the same roads I had trouble with on Saturday, only this time I handled them with caution and patience. I left my old New York attitude at home. Recovery is a lot slower these days. It was a slow and steady pace and my knee ached both inside and out. I am confident with tomorrow's beautiful weather I will be able to increase my mileage.
