Well, with almost a month off the bike completely, it's time to get back into it. I have my fingers crossed that my immune system is back to full strength. I plan on taking my return slow to make sure I stay in good health. While on my first ride back, I was thinking about all my years on the bike (I am currently in my 19th year of competitive cycling) and how lucky I have been with injury and sickness. From this perspective I can't complain at all. But it is good to be back.
