Bike Ride – September 5, 2015

You may have noticed that I’ve been out of commission for most of the summer.  In my post of May 2, 2015 I mentioned that I crashed my bike and planted my face in the concrete.  About a month later I started experiencing some pretty serious muscle weakness.  I spent most of the summer trying to determine why and what to do about it.  It has been slowly getting better for the last month to the point that I’m riding more.  My neurologist (yes, now I have a neurologist.) thinks I injured the spine in my neck when I crashed and it is slowly healing.

The muscle weakness started about a week after I bought a brand new all carbon bike.  It was kind of frustrating not to be able to ride much after I got the new bike.  Here’s the bike.

So, to the ride. There aren’t many pictures since we didn’t cover any new territory.  Today’s ride was mostly to get back in the swing.

Met Tom C. at Whetstone Park and we took the Olentangy Bike Trail downtown.

There is a new construction project just starting on the corner of Rich Street & High Street.  I don’t know what it is.

I’ve mentioned this project across the street a couple times in the past, here and here.  It is coming along nicely.

We stopped by the North Market on the way back north and got a bite to eat.

Back to Whetstone – 18 miles.  It was humid enough that the ride also counted as an 18 mile swim.

    I don’t know how you could ride five minutes in this humidity let alone 14 miles. Glad you’re back out and about. Bike looks sleek – – nice lines.

    Glad you’re back at it. I have missed seeing all Columbus has to offer. I don’t quite understand why you bought a bike made of coal?
