    First Ride!!!

    Well some of you may know I had shoulder surgery in nov and have been off my bike since then. Tonight I had finally had enough so I put some air in my flat tires and took my FSR XC out for a spin and man did it feel good to be back out on my bike after so long. I really hope I'll be ready for some real riding here soon I'm going nuts just staring at my bikes everyday!

    I hope to see all of my SORBA family here real soon out on the trails!

    Been there! I broke my patella this fall. The first ride back burned so bad. My lungs hurt, my legs were weak and there was definitely pain in my knee but it was one of the best rides I've ever had.

    Glad to hear you're back in the saddle! It probably goes without saying, but be extra cautious riding with that healing shoulder.

    What did you have done to your shoulder? I had a "Weaver Dunn" surgery to repair a bad 3rd degree AC separation in 1999 and it lasted 7 years before I blew it apart again. Do your physical therapy, forever! Good luck and make it a speedy recovery.

    I had a bicips tenidis (sp) and am currently in physical therapy so I really hope to be 95% or so here in a month or 2.

    Today I had off from work and decided it was time to hit the trails no matter what mother nature had in store. I loaded up the XC and got to the trails for some nice 30 degree riding with a bit of water in a few spots on the trails but overall a great ride!! 6 or so miles of pure bliss just me my bike and nature! I really have missed it and am so glad I am able to continue to do what I love!

    A kinda dirty pic!
