Can't wait to get my bike and be back on the road. 3 weeks have seemed like eternity, but could be potentially 5 weeks without cycling.

I was, 3 weeks I was knocked off my bike. So I was off it for about 2 and half weeks. Then on my first commute back on it, I found out it hade been stolen. So in the process of buying another one through the c2w scheme

I couldn't go that long
Well some have to due to injury. I was probably off bikes for about 2 months last year after my accident, then started cycling too quickly and did myself more mischief

If you buy a bike on C2W, make sure it's properly insured for the full replacement value. If stolen, you'd still be responsible for paying your employer back for it

I cannot imagine what it would be like not to cycle (and also run) Take today I cycled 8 miles into work on my kinesis racelight tk2...then 11 miles home...and as I got home early this afternoon (after dropping my kinesis at the LBS to sort out a bottom bracket) I went for a 7 mile run (in preparation for next half marathon. I am a little tired this evening:smile: but I can totally undestand the frustation if you have not been out on the road for a number of weeks...good luck with the recovery.

lets face it half the reason you posted that is so that you can show off that you commute on a kinesis racelight tk2! nothing wrong with that, we all have to show off every now and then! ;)

I'm more impressed by @runner's 7 mile run, after cycling to work, working and cycling back!

I've been cleared by the physio. I'm doing it for no more than 20 minutes at a time, on a low level of resistance. I stop if it starts to get uncomfortable

I'm banned from running due to my knees, which suits me fine :biggrin:

sounds fine to me :thumbsup:
running, a pain in the arse ankles, i sprain one or two every time i go out but i do love it really. even though i have hyper mobility (extra long/flexy ligaments so they sprain easily) i WILL one day complete either half or whole marathon! that's not a i want to that's a i WILL! :biggrin:
