Back on the Bike

I was going to wait until the weekend to get back on my bike, but the more I thought about it, the more nervous I was, so I knew I couldn't wait that long (or my nerves would get the best of me).  It seemed like a lot of other bloggers were heading down to Hains Point this morning, so I decided to go.


Not surprisingly, it wasn't as bad as I was imagining and, of course, I survived!  I did learn that my bike needs some work post-crash (couldn't shift the front gear to the big ring), so I'll be heading to the bike shop tonight.

My elbow is still kind of gross and scabby and I was worried about riding with it exposed so I wore one arm warmer (rolled up slightly because it's hot) to create a cover.  Not that it would have really protected my elbow from injury had I fallen again, but it made me feel better.  And, obviously, looked awesome!

Congrats on getting back out there. It's too bad it didn't work out to ride together this morning. At least we could say hello!

Good for you getting back on the bike! I think I'm going to start doing morning Haines Point rides next week, maybe we can meet up?
