About That NOT Doing Anything Dumb Stipulation...

First day back on my road bike in over four months...didn't quite go according to plan...


Thankfully my hand isn't broken which was my initial concern after the adrenaline wore off and the swelling set in. Amazingly the bike sustained only minor damage and outside of the 'delayed onset muscle soreness' through the following 48hrs I escaped with nothing permanently damaged other than my pride. Oh yeah, and I jimmy-rigged my GoPro to my bike for the first time but thankfully for my ego the camera wasn't actually rolling while I went over the bars, nor was the camera itself damaged in the fall.

On a funnier note, I did arrive home to my Grandma neighbor doing gardening to constant uncensored gangster rap.

Maybe you could throw some slicks on a mountain bike, if you own one and ditch the gadgets. Just go out and spin away for awhile until you get your feet under you and let you legs adjust. Mellow out and enjoy the process.
