First ride!

First day back riding in close to three months; I'm hurting. Just the simple ride to and from work is difficult again. And, of course, the saddle hurts for the first few rides.
But on the up side, I've decided the Pugsleys are not built for avoiding things. I found myself aiming for everything I could throw at Batty to see how it did. From mud to ice to curbs, not a problem.
On one particular mountain of ice, I was quite impressed by how well Batty crawled up. I got half way up and was expecting to lay on the crank and spin the back wheel. No way! Gripped fine and rolled right on up. I think I'm in love.
Mileage: 7
