Bummer Head, I gave up cyclocross because they added 2 rods and 4 bolts to my lower back. The pain is constant but at least I can still ride.

Sorry to hear that Mr Head.

My back isn't that messed up but it hurts when I do long rides and especially when tucked in on long descents (see pic). Doing core work in the gym has helped. It'd help more if I did more.

Buddy of mine swears by it. (and there's hot chicks too!)

So, since moto-riding is bad for your back, I'll just hop on a plane and ride your bike back here. I'll 'take care of it' for ya for free. I'm suck a swell dood, ain't I?!

Come and see my doc, he rides too. Couple of months ago when I went to see him after crashing and injuring my hand the last thing he said when I left was don't stop riding your bicycle For my back, he wants me to do crunches.

From what you describe, my 60 y.o. back isn't nearly as bad as yours, but hurts if I do too much sitting. Stretching out on the bike does wonders for it.

Hope you get through it ok.

Just had a vision of me in yoga pants. Ack!
But that is the most likely route. Need to sell off the big bike. Maybe something lighter?
1098's are pretty light right?
Back felt like crap this morning trying to make breakfast so I got the wife to stir the oats and I made a quick egg.
Time to go find my backpack and Fred gear feels like Houston outside. Try for a little ride. Then I need to change the fuel filter in the pig.

My Doc has been trying to get me into yoga for like 5 years now due it certain disk issue that I have.....I haven't missed a day of work for my back in like 3 years now so the hell with her.

I wouldn't mind the exercise part, its the chanting world peace bullshit that turns me off about it.

So, after watching MotoGP practice and qualifying all morning I took off about noon for a ride. Filled up my Fred-pack and headed out for roads.
That was hot and hard. I filled a bottle at a park on the way back and drank a good bit as long as I was there. I should have added some to the pack. I ran out of all fluids about a 1/4 mile from home. That's a little close.
Got home grabbed a ice cold water bottle from the fridge, upstairs to lay on ice, and cool down. Worked great.

Maxed my hr at 171 and averaged 140.
No KOM's were ever in any danger.
My back never hurt a bit the entire time. I did have to stop in the shade a few times to cool down. My shoes are burning my feet, or rather the second toe on either foot goes numb, (both have been broken multiple times and are a bit mishapen), I aired them a tad in the shade up on the big hill. Time to go find shoes.



I accomplished what I set out to do, find a route to the ocean as an alternative to my usual out and back along the river. If I continued on the Stevens Canyon Trail I would land in the Newport Backbay. Also I know where the water and toilets are now so I can get a good bit of climbing in and score about 70 miles. Now, I just need the fitness to manage that.

Nothin' wrong with that ride. I think your doctor may be an idjit.

Had a good day up in the mountains today on what may be the toughest climb I've done to date. The descent hurt too, hands went numb from the vibes and my neck was aching after being tucked in for so long. A tough but rewarding ride.

Want to lose a quick 15 lbs? Try 6 days in the hospital, 4 NPO and the rest clear liquids.

Feels good to be back home, though. Doc says no limitations on exercise but I still feel awfully weak and little cloudy headed.

Glad to see you guys are still turning 'em round.

Back in the saddle again....well, rolling lawn chair

First ride since tasting asphalt on July 5th. It was about 37 miles - 90% flat as a fritter. Hot, humid - felt more like August in AL rather than Aug in AZ.

Two flats but uneventful other than that.

Well, there just isn't much to do for it but get back on the bike for a few miles.

Some miles better than no miles.
