After eight months of worsening symptoms and two months off the bike living with constant pain, nausea and random vomiting, the crew and I were able to get back on the bike pain-free last week. After a bit of a long haul through the public health system to figure out what was wrong, I had emergency surgery on 25 November. Keyhole surgery is a wonderful thing and I’ve recovered quickly – though I’m still not supposed to do anything strenuous until mid-January lest I herniate the incision site at the belly button. With that in mind, we did a ride with three days of riding and three days of resting just before Christmas.

But here are a few A-B-C-D-E-S photos pulled from that trip.
Probably not much riding the last few days of the year as Lednar is sending over his heatwave with temps forecast to be over 100F through 2 January here. So Happy New Year to all! I hope 2022 is a much better year for everyone and I look forward to your posts next year.
