My first time on the trials bike for a group ride in 3 months. Taking it really easy since my tendon injury isn’t fully healed yet.

Due to schedule challenges from work, winter weather, physical therapy, and probably some other stuff, it’s been about a month since I’ve been able to get out for a bike trials group ride. The tendon injury in my arm is still far from healed, though it’s definitely improving – enough that my physical therapist gave the ok to try some (gentle!) trials biking again. Since I definitely want this arm to heal as quickly as possible, I took it pretty easy on this week’s ride… thought it’s still sore 2 days later. Sigh…

Even though it’s only been about 3 months since my injury, riding the bike felt somewhat foreign. It took a bit to get down the timing and muscle memory. Having said that, I really didn’t ride much since I didn’t want to overdo it and end up missing out even more of the upcoming season. I think I rode only 4-5 simple lines (one of which you won’t see in the edit because I’m an idiot and didn’t press the record button). Despite the challenges and the pain, it was good to be back on my bike.

As usual, Glacial Park didn’t disappoint, with its endless supply of rocks and trials lines. And of course being with the trials crew is always a blast!
