More Photos

I finally got around to adding slideshows of the 2012 Lake Tahoe ride and last month's Nashville ride. You can find those over on the left side of the page, just below the Training Tracker. The slideshows cover the entire weekend of the rides. So there are photos of the training ride, the pre-ride excursions, the helmet decorating party, and the ride itself. Unfortunately I didn't get a lot of photos of the actual ride in Nashville. We were trying to beat the cut-off time on the way out so I figured I would just take pictures on the way back. However the way back was in the back of an ambulance so I didn't get any photos. Mary was kind enough to take a few of me after the crash. I included a couple, but none of the bruising, which still isn't completely gone.

Post crash update

I'm getting a little better every day. I had a follow up appointment with my family physician and the hole in my lung is completely healed. They did see a bit of pneumonia developing so they put me on antibiotics to knock that out. I took the last dose yesterday and I never had any symptoms, so I should be good there. The bruising and swelling has gone down considerably, but my hip and ribs are still quite sore. I'm finally up off the couch and getting some work done, but no heavy lifting.

I got my bike back over the weekend. Because of the accident and the fact that I was going to be spending extra time in Nashville, we sent the bikes home with other team mates. My bike is a little dinged up, but appears to be in fine shape. Not that I'll be riding it any time soon. The doctor said no riding until November. And since I'm not a big fan of riding in the cold I may just be done for the year. If so, that gives me 1,206 miles for the year. Not what I hoped for, but not terrible. Here's hoping for a few warm days before Thanksgiving.
