Finally!!! Have not been on my bike since beginning of june. First wasn't allowed because of a mini-op that got me banned for several weeks and as soon as I got over that I got a really nasty chest infection which somehow seemed to half my peak flow reading from what it should have been and left me coughing non-stop. Anyway, been to docs again today and readings are slowly creeping back up although still low (also chest x-ray fine and almost stopped coughing) - and she told me I can go back on the bike as it will only help my poor battered lungs recover! Hooray!!! Can't wait to get the pump out and take poor neglected Simon for a spin tomorrow - watching the TDF just made my withdrawal symptoms worse!!!
