That was my excuse two weeks ago, and then it rained; tomorrow will be my first commute back on!

Yes, and it was absolutely fantastic to be back on the bike today.

I'm on A/L so no commutes for a few weeks.
Getting as much bike time as the GLW and her "paint this-and that" mid reno frenzy allows.
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

I am pleased that, while the last three weeks have been difficult (ankle problem) I have worked back to doing the sorts of distances that I normally do. I still have a little trepidation but I can carry that with me as long as I doing what I want to do.

Yes there are sometimes legit reasons to not cycle. But it's just so hard NOT to. :mrgreen:

Work was quiet so took the chance to take my first week of annual leave since 2nd was born. That means first week of not daily commuting this year. Aim to finish pool fencing and assemble a cubby house and sand pit and hang shade sails, with only the children's Christmas joy riding on it, making diverted cycling energy seem justified, probably not honourable until I organise some Xmas gifts charity delivery to Good Sammys collection at work... There is a cargo commute excuse :)

Honorable reason, though I will not be using it too soon if I can help it: My GP yesterday gave me the good oil on my recent xrays and ultrasound and I have substantial osteo in the left foot. (I suspect the right is just the same.)

The good news is it is not rheumatoid anyway. Here's hoping the celebrex has some effect. Perhaps cortisone. There is never a good time to have surgery.

Colin - wishing you all the best for your foot (or feet) I hope you find a good method to maintain as mobility as possible.

hope it doesn't limit you from doing the things you love - not just cycling.
Not fast, no style, but still get there.
