Some will say that falling is part of being a mountain biker. Though I may agree, it doesn’t make it any easier when it happens. Especially for us over 40.
My week started off throwing my neck out stretching at my desk at work. Yes, stretching at work. So after a couple chiropractor visits I felt decent enough to get on the bike the first day of the long Memorial Day weekend. Like most of the USA, I had monday off as a holiday, and took an extra vacation day for tuesday. My plan was to get in lots of riding with friends and possibly a long solo ride on my day off while the kids were in school.
