Ride on Papa! Sorry to hear about the RA. Was the gin and tonic part of the treatment

What are you pulling behind the bike?


























Hawk Missile Launcher?

I try not to fall a lot. I have RA in my hands, wrists, knees and feet. All the toes on my left foot are dislocated. I carry a cane strapped to my saddle bag. Mounting and dismounting my ride always involves a bit of pain and a carefully choreographed sequence of incremental movements. That day in Homedale, feeling adventurous after a couple gin and tonics in Marsing, I broke my routine, and fell.

Took about a month for my knee to reduce to it's normal creaky self.
