The leg has healed and I’m on my way to full-time riding

After a lot of debating this, we've decided that I will start riding indoors a few days a week on top of my outdoor adventure rides.

All the bikes are clean, now I need to function properly

Lately things have been a little different for me. I function fully based on surroundings and energy, everything around me affects how my day will be; this is the biggest reason we always say keep drama far away from us.

Waiting for clearance from my doctor to ride my bike

Today I finally got to see my new doctor, or at least his fill-in; it was a good visit.

This had … Continue reading Waiting for clearance from my doctor to ride my bike
