So you need another photographer to catch the airborne shots? Looks like fun, and I love bridges that are lonely enough to park your bike in the middle for awhile

Look closer... The real fun of that bridge is there is a *TIGHT* 90-degree corner at each end, with fairly high approach speeds, and because of the odd rise of the bridge both are dead-blind as to what might be coming the other way on that single-lane bridge...

Sometimes it makes for some... shall we say... *interesting* moments!

It is often one of the most serene bridge spots around here, though.

The sooner you can get on the bike, the faster you will recover, this bike makes my day everytime I ride it!

Wow! Truly amazing.

As others have already stated, I have no doubt everyone here is pulling for you. I gotta' say you're an inspiration to me, and I have every confidence you will reach your goal.

Go, Geology Rocks!!!

Joe,
20 years ago I suffered paralysis from the chest down for a short period of time following an incident. At the time I thought it was permanent and it was the scariest time of my life, so much so that I wanted to be with my maker.
It is difficult for any fit person to feel your pain but I have had a small glimpse of it and it was horrible.
I sincerely wish you all speedy progress in your difficult journey back to health.
Ray
