TLRC is back! After a minor, embarrassing “affliction”, which required a “procedure” to rectify, TLRC was “out of the saddle” for a while. While trying to stay in shape on the stationary recumbent, he managed to wangle himself a pretty nasty bout of ITB inflamation that took a while longer to cure. Then came the Ice Age, and since the unfortunate event of last year (the one involving the patch of ice and the broken pelvis), TLRC is reticent about ice riding. Thus the hiatus. If this all sounds like the querulous rantings of an aging cyclist, you’re right!
