I just took my first outdoor ride in over 10 years (since my accident). Our host had to run an errand to West Marine and needed my help so my wife consented to my going.

Granted it was only a 0.75 mi jaunt on a marina cruiser bike but it felt like I was riding titanium-cro moly-carbon time trial bike. Apparently I had a grin from ear to ear. Best 12 minutes of the year!

Hmmm, 12 minutes, .75, thatís 3.75 mph... can you even stay upright at that speed?

Mark, super happy for you. Glad you got to have that feeling once more.

Hey!!!! I looked just like Eddy Merckx.

Thanks everyone. If that's all I ever get to do, it was enough. But the seed is now planted.

Grinning from ear to ear is a frequent side effect of cycling! Glad you got an outdoor ride!

Congratulations! What an exciting effort that would have been. It's the little things that can actually be tremendous to experience.
