Not just my knees, but other parts of my legs. It's made me nervous about trying to handle the weight of my bike. I haven't been on it since my surgery. But Alan and I were talking yesterday. We're both getting depressed. And I think we need to get out on some rides to help with that. I don't know how much gravel there is on our favorite roads, though. We might have to steer clear of the mountains, and I'm not to keen about riding east, where it's flat and boring. But just getting out on the bike would probably be great!
Do it Julie, I'm envious, we're still snowed in here, with snow in the forecast for the next few weeks. :-( A ride would definitely help, just take your time and enjoy the bike, being on the road again. Hang in there you two, I know it must be very tough.

I hereya Brent. They are on the list. But I gotta get outta some other debt first. With our economy going down the drain, its a bit scary. I might have to wait a year or so.

Lobo It has been snowing here for the last 3 days, but it has melted almost as fast as it hit the ground. Regardless of the snow there won't be any riding until I ditch the front tire. Just haven't figured out which one to get yet.

I suspect mid March and our season should start with high 50* days.

Snickerdoodle Silly, I meant prejudice against those of us who CAN ride in the winter time!!!

Same here, it's been almost exactly 3 months since my last ride but feels like 6. :-(
