bikes + biomechanics + a messy life
We have always tried to live life to the fullest, in our own modest bikecentric way, and sooner or later we knew certain life-experience events would catch up with us. Well, it has! A few weeks ago we pulled a hamstring muscle and discovered that the (unhappy) right side of the body was not quite the same as the (much happier) left side of our body.
So entering into our life is weekly physiotherapy, and stern advice to not hammer! Luckily bikes can be ridden slower (which is not, we point out, the same as slow), and we continue to explore and experience the full joys of life on two wheels.
So life has become a smidge more moderate, and we are looking forward to regaining 100% of our hamstring muscle again, because we got a new mtn bike this year, and we want (heck, we need) to hammer!
We don't want pity, but we do want to stretch properly after rides for a change. And we learned to do the "wiper."
