First 2019 ride in today

Got my first ride of the season in today.

I had surgery late last month to fix a torn meniscus in my right knee. I took my bike in about 1.5 weeks ago for a pre-season tune up and rode for a couple minutes around the shop's parking lot but it was still a bit painful then. Almost no pain today. Felt good to get out on the trail again today.

Since it's supposed to be nice and mid 60s going to probably go out again tomorrow afternoon for another ride.

1. Took my youngest son out on friday


I lost an argument with a spider 6 months ago and broke my ankle. I've been riding inside since December, but this was my longest outside ride since September.

It's 22 miles and it took us 1:42:31. Not flying.

2. I think my personal longest ride was about 13.5 miles

That was the Bear River trail near Preston. I think it took me just about two hours. I wasn't racing to get it done either. And it was a cool fall day so I was bundled up.

I did a 5.5 mile one yesterday that took me about 45 minutes along the Mississippi River. Of course there was stops to take pictures every so often. And a quick 2.5 mile 30 minute one over lunch break today. I did it then since we're having rain this evening.

I'm looking forward to doing the Bear River trail again. Parts of the trail are flooded now so have to wait for the water to go down a bit.
