I have the fixed gear ready for the winter riding season. I mounted up the studded tires, put on the lighting and put a rear rack on. Thing is...I think it may be a while before I get out riding. I was on a ride about 2 1/2 weeks ago riding along Lake Superior. I stopped to walk down to the lake. As I was climbing back up the clay bank from the lake, I thought it would be easier to run the bank and not slip much. It worked well for a bit until I thought I felt something hit the back of my leg. I stopped and turned around to see what it was. Instant calf pain is what it was. It was bad enough to where I had to crawl back up and to the bike. I tried to walk it off and that wasn't happening, so it was a one legged pedal back to the truck. I searched on line and have been trying to doctor it myself. Although it has gotten much better, the leg is still very sore. I understand it can take quite some time to heal. That is one stupid move I would like to have do overs on.
Studded tires mounted up and ready...teasing me. That's what they're doing.
This has been my view the last two mornings as I have been trying to ease back into riding. The dreaded trainer. Starting with 30 minutes. I think I might be pushing it a little because as I said earlier, it still is sore, but I hate not riding. We will see how it goes.
Get outdoors and have some fun!!
