    Did a little more today, but it's only 25 degrees out so I cut it short. Pedal works great, but it's a lot less power from the right leg with the shorter crank, may have to walk the bike over the causeway bridge when I get back to FL. Am so so happy to have found it though because riding had become an impossibility before.

    That is so awesome, Pax. This is why it's important to keep TE going...

    Agreed, without Sylvia sharing her research with me on this topic, I'd still be stuck at square one. We help each other out here and that is priceless.

    That is truly awesome to read. And yes, it is important to keep this site opened. I'm happy that you found a solution Pax. Little (or should we say big) things like this changes a life!

    I rode up to Saguaro NP - didn't bring my card but a friendly cyclist I had met before had me ride through the gate on his pass.

    It was cloudy and a little breezy but I saw at least 10 kinds of wildflowers, mostly just the very first individuals.

    Wonderful news, Pax. It may not be perfect, but being able to ride at all vs. not ride is priceless!

    Couldn't have said it, better. I'm at an age where I really do wonder how long I will be able to continue riding as much as I do. It's something I will never take for granted, believe me. I admire you, greatly, Pax, for keeping the spirit. Go, girl.

    Ten miles of fat biking out on our thawing snowpack on paved roads, today, then tried some trail work. Not good, though. Even the fat bikes stall out when the crust gives way and the bike sinks into a foot of snow, underneath. Will try, again, tomorrow, before the temps get warm enough to soften the crust.
