Now that the allergies have been beaten into submission and my balance is quite improved I got back in the saddle and resumed my commuting to work by bike.
My morning commute was going along swimmingly until I was cruising down a slight hill and encountered a bug which caused a slight choking fit. Luckily no one was around to witness my hacking and coughing fit. It was super uncool.
The homeward ride was plesant enough until that last little bit. There is a slight incline/hill just as you come up to Warden that just takes it out of me. I have yet to get off and walk the bike up it, instead I choose to crank my way along in 1st gear, all the while being passed by the residents of the Nursing Home on the corner.
