How is it you can have a bicycle for 4 years and have never noticed that the cross bar has this really cool name on it😳😳 Little Bessie is officially now “Uptown Bessie”. I never noticed that it says “uptown ex” right there.
Can’t believe it is January 12th and it is my first ride. Yes, we have been having rain but the main issue was a little “incident” that is what I’m calling it, that sent me to the ER on the 3rd. Seems even if you have exercised nearly daily since 1980, never smoked, recently lost a lot of weight, eat healthy, no high cholesterol..(I have been on high BP meds for yrs) …….. you can have issues. I wasn’t going to mention it here but we’ve talked about Jack’s health and even though I’m embarrassed, pissed off and feel betrayed by my body I’ll share. I had what is called a TIA (Transient ischemic attack) it was an attack. Came on very suddenly and left just as suddenly. TIA’s are basically a stroke that Does Not leave any damage or side affects. If you don’t count the betrayal!! My Mother’s family and my Dad’s both have a strong history of stroke. I did get to meet some really cute firemen and EMTs and get to ride in a cool ambulance to ER. I knew something wasn’t right and called Jack first, out on his bike, but he said call 911….which if any of you ever have something like this DO Call 911. I was kept 24hrs and given every test there is and I am happy/lucky to report all clear of any previous stroke and no damage from this one. My heart is good and no clogged arteries. So, guess all this biking has helped. I’m feeling fine and was released without restrictions can ride, walk and trot as much as I’d like.
Well that’s enough of that…..it was time to ride and look for clouds on this beautiful day.
We did our Asilomar loop about 18 miles. Which was just right to see how I was going to feel.
It was a beautiful day and I’m beyond happy to be back on my bike. Just like being out on a tour you don’t always know what’s around the corner and just have to go with it. On ON Happy Trails…..
