When I was out riding today I noticed that the mountains were as clear as they've ever been, so we went for a ride to have a look. Unfortunately, you'll have to enlarge the pictures to see them. My camera's zoom isn't that powerful, so they look quite far away. It's funny that sometimes pictures make things look farther away than when you are looking at them.

Riding Again!

I'm finally riding again. I rode to work on Friday, and it wasn't too bad. I used my brakes only a few times on the way down the hill. I was able to ride up both sides, although I had some trouble on the way back home. The wind was gusting to 65km/hr, so it was hard. At one point a gust knocked me off the sidewalk, so I had to walk a bit while it passed.

I rode for 25 kms on Saturday, albeit slowly. Today I did 2 hill repeats on the Paradise Canyon hill. I was going to do 3, but my rear end was too sore. I have trouble with power output from my left leg. My right is doing a lot of work right now. Hopefully as I keep riding this'll improve.

Although the accident was an interesting experience, I hope never to have to go through that again.
