This was one of the most exhilarating and painful things I’ve done in a long time. First time back on the bike after breaking my arm on September 25 … 11 miles, about 800 feet of climbing, and I felt it all; legs and lungs hurt from losing whatever fitness I may have had before my crash, and arm from getting jarred by the chipsealed roads in Fountain Hills. And yet, it felt really good to get out there however briefly … looking forward to riding again tomorrow and Sunday and all next week.

And maybe on one of those rides I’ll remember to take some pictures.
