Back in the Saddle...

Yesterday, was my first time on a bike in over 3 weeks.  It was wonderful! It's like being born again.  Hallejujah!  It was 3 Friday's ago that I had sprained my ankle, badly.    I had gained 10 pounds, felt out of breath, with weak legs, but it was so nice to be out cruising around.  I did take it slow, and my ankle is still not 100%, but by today I was getting my old mojo back.  And on my way to Namaste Cafe for a chai, I saw this beautiful bike.  A Suburban.  Note the melting snow.   Now I can start seeing bikes again.

Awesome! Glad the ankle's better. That is a cool Suburban. I love the food at Namaste, one of my favorites!

Thanks! Namaste is the best. If you see a Gary Fisher on the porch, it's quite likely me.

Nice bike! Glad you're back to riding again. Can't wait for spring here, either!

sprained ankles.. i had two last summer... but at least summer had patios.. not riding for 3 weeks is worse than being sick for a week... must feel refreshing to suck in the cold winter air as you ride past cars...some people people will never understand why we ride in the winter..
