Back in the saddle, sort of

City Bike  I know I said I wasn't going to buy another bicycle, but I went with Steve to the bike shop today to get some road shoes and the next thing I know, here I am, the proud owner of a new commuter bike!  It's great because it's a nice cross between a road bike and a mountain bike.  It has the smoothness and easy acceleration of a road bike with the sturdiness and solid feel of a mountain bike, combining road components with flat bars.  It's going to be perfect for commuting to and from the courts once I'm back playing tennis again and is equally at home on the street or on the dirt path.  The physical therapists are still limiting the length of time I can bicycle with my rehab each day until the knee swelling goes down more, but even in that brief period, it felt great to be outside pedaling again this afternoon enjoying such gorgeous autumn weather!
