After 4 months being off the bike after accident & hospitalisation, I've just tried my usual commuting run to see if I'm up to it or had any problems - balance, confidence etc. All went well and Mrs C didn't have to many puppies with me returning to the wheels again. So, one less excuse for being off work now...bugger! Oh well, I'm signed off until the 6th of October and the specialists at my out-patient clinic say that I shouldn't rush back to work. Perhaps another couple of weeks if my GP insists!
