A Sunday Tragedy

Here I sit, on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Working.

Doug H came out to my place for a planned 80-mile ride over Peekamoose and then to the Neversink Reservoir. Unfortunately, about 5 miles into the ride I had a mechanical that resulted in a crash. Now I’m sitting here nursing a wrist that has swelled up to the size of a tennis ball.

So sad…as you know, I spent the past month traveling, so I’ve only been able to get in a few quick rides. I was looking forward to this ride for the last 5 weeks!

Hopefully the swelling will go down enough that I can do some short 10- to 15- mile rides every day this week, and by next Saturday, it better be gone, because we’ve got a 200k planned.
