If you are new to posting on this thread, or if you are new to cycling, We welcome you! If you are returning from a previous thread, We welcome you, too.

This thread is for anyone who rides a bicycle ... or unicycle, tricycle, tandem, etc.

Do you bike to work? Do you pull your children to the park? So you ride weekends? Do you spin at home or in the gym? Is Zwift your thing? Do you race crits, ironman, or centuries? Or, are you just starting out and remembering how much fun you had biking when you were a kid? However you choose to push your pedal, you are welcome on this thread.

There's no set challenge across participants - this is a mixed-ability / mixed-experience / everyone welcome group. Just pick your own target that you want to achieve this month, post that when you join the thread, and post updates throughout the month as you're working towards your target.

Forward in February ...


(BTW - Thanks to @CricketKate for starting all this back in 2012)

    PT thinks I have a fractured right hip (stress fracture). Will find out for sure next week, and then we'll see where I go from there.

    What's the news on your hip @Machka9 ?
  • Machka9

    I went for my third MRI in about 2 months on Wednesday ... this time on my hip area.

    Fortunately, the PT's assumption wasn't quite right.
    Unfortunately, the PT's assumption wasn't quite right.

    Around the end of Nov, I started feeling a bit of an ache in my right leg when running. Figured it was muscle. Rested a bit, did some stretching, and it felt a little bit better.

    Ran a half-marathon, and could barely hobble by the end. Still figured it was muscle, tried more rest and stretching, but lots of difficulty walking, and definitely no running. It even hurt to cycle.

    Went to a PT who ran me through a whole bunch of tests and was pretty sure I'd fractured my hip ... stress fracture. No walking, no cycling, no running, no stretching ... nothing for a week until my MRI. If it were a stress fracture, I would have had to rest for the next 4-6 weeks.

    But it's not a stress fracture! Instead, I've torn the cartilage in my hip and have really messed up the ligaments.

    Yes, I'll still have to rest, so treating it as a stress fracture would have been all right in that regard, but I can still do some exercise (slow and short walking and cycling, not running) and it will be treated with specific stretching and strengthening by my PT. If we had assumed it was a stress fracture and I just rested, I would have lost a lot of fitness, and I would not have done the stretching and strengthening aspect so my ligaments may not have recovered as well as they might. Of course, we still have to wait and see. But three cheers for MRIs to show what's wrong!

    I'm hoping to go for a short bicycle ride tomorrow, if possible. Nothing strenuous. :)

    Ticked off one of my goals for the year and cycled on-road abroad.
    Family holiday in Tenerife was perfect opportunity to hire a bike for couple of days.
    Can see why the pro teams train here, loads of everlasting hills, great weather, good quality roads and even courteous drivers.

    This is the elevation track from my longer ride, 5 miles along the coast into a strong headwind and then constant climbing into the mountains.

    A week of cycling contrasts for me, two rides in Tenerife and two rides back home in England.

    Tenerife: Temps of 26 - 31C, smooth and well maintained roads, courteous and considerate drivers, mountains.
    England: Temps of 7 - 12C, awful pot-holed roads, inattentive or inconsiderate drivers, hills.

    Took some time to acclimatise to cycling on the "wrong" side of the road in Spain and having brake levers the "wrong" way round but it was a great experience.

    129 miles for the week, 185 miles for the month with over 8,000ft of climbing.

    Amazingly good weather for February continues here in southern England so able to get outside and ride.

    Did the "ride your age in miles on your birthday" thing but 59 miles was far too close to a metric century to stop there so did 63.

    140 miles for the week, 326 for February.

    Took advantage of February's record breaking warm temperatures in England and cycled outside far more than is usually possible for me at this time of year.
    27 hours and 408 miles puts me nicely ahead of schedule for doing some long distance events in Spring.

    I'm really hoping March is much more friendly weather wise than February has been. Although it doesn't seem to be starting out well with record low temps of -15 F overnight (that's without windchill) this weekend! Counting the days to my Moab trip in April....

    Hence ... running behind on the goals and going back to the basics.
