It’s been a long winter. I haven’t ridden in something like six months. So I binged a little on my first ride, and now my right knee hurts a bit. It’s likely a fit or cleat issue or a too much too soon issue. I was only going to do 15 or 20 miles, but I was tempted to do more. Regardless of the slight discomfort, it was awesome to get out. It was chilly at 40 degrees and windy, but a few layers were enough. I ran into Dave on the way back, and riding with him was nice.
Nice sunny, windy ride at lunch yesterday. Rode out to Eclipse and back, and extended it another two miles by looping through South Green. I was going tos ride today, but I've got a tinge (for lack of a better description) down my right hip and into my knee. I had the same pain yesterday, but I didn't feel it on the bike. Despite being okay yesterday, I figured it best to rest today. It's supposed to be sunny on Friday, so perhaps I can get a lunch ride in then.
Got out this morning for a really nice ride. With the van in the shop, I had no way to get my bike to the bike path, so I rode from my house. Did a little over 23 miles in about an hour and forty minutes. My right knee is still clicking a little off and on, even after raising my seat 1/4 inch. I will probably leave the seat where it is for a while and hope it sorts itself out. Made it up Blackburn and Wonder Hills without much of an issue. It’s always a good day when you can ride 20 miles and make it up Blackburn.
Got in a good ride on the bike path this morning. I started later than I intended, but still managed to get to Nelsonville and back in just under two hours. The bike path can get a touch boring at times, but it is a way to get miles in a predictable amount of time. In the mornings it is a very peaceful ride, though today I had to dodge quite a few chipmunks. Below are a few snapshots.
