Beer Run

The folks at the Hub posted on facebook that they had Highlands Cold Mountain on draft, so I planned a short cross ride to have one.  Kind of a chilly ride, but my knee felt great, even standing.  Rode on a little gravel, enjoyed my favorite seasonal brew, and cruised on home.

Downtime Update

This is supposed to primarily be a blog about mountain biking. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to do any of that since the beginning of June, but I'm definitely getting closer. I've finished PT, and have started going to Crossfit Brevard instead. The owner is a great guy, who also very recently had an ACL reconstruction, so he's very understanding with scaling the workouts down for me. My knee is getting much stronger, though. I had isokinetic testing done last week, and I am at about 90% now. Not bad for 5 months post-surgery.

I have been able to ride a bit, though. I got Heather and I used cross bikes, and we've been riding around town and on the bike path quite a bit. It feels great to be pedaling again, even if it is just on the bike path. The knee feels really good while riding, with the exception of some weakness while pedaling standing up.

I've been trying to find ways to keep myself busy on the weekends. For some reason, we can never find a harness that fits Kenda right, so I just made one.


I also decided that because of what I do and where I do it, that I'd get my concealed carry permit. So a couple of days ago, I took my class.


It was a beautiful day, so I took the long way home via BRP.


Things are really looking up, and hopefully I'll be posting ride reports again in the very near future. Cheers!
