There will be a temporary gap in postings. Saturday before last, we went to Pineywoods Purgatory and had a great ride. I had some of the pictures lined up for the write-up and was going to post it last Monday after our routine Monday Group Ride.
About half way through our ride, we do a turn around on Spillway Road. After a re-group, we continue the ride. However, on this ride, as I started my turn around, I hit some loose gravel. My front tire went out from beneath me and I landed on my forearm and left hip.
You guessed it.
I have a new hip ball and socket. I was released from the hospital Friday and will begin physical therapy tomorrow and the slow road to recovery.
I hope everyone will be able to continue riding over the fall/winter season. As for me, the doctor has only indicated that he is sure I will be able to ride the Ride Through the Pines next March.
I hope to start posting again next month when I think I will be mobile and at least be able to get into and out of a chair by myself.
