After what seems like a century since my little knee issue, I’m finally able to pedal my road bike -- although I’m not ready to take it outside yet.

I’ve got the Madone mounted on a trainer down in the basement. Wasn’t able to get the crank all the way around a week ago.

Today, the therapist really pushed me on the exercises and stretched out all those ligaments. After coming home and a half-hour of ice and rest, I figured I’d give the bicycle another try. Piece of cake!

Don’t want to overdo it, so just spent 10 minute or so at the lowest setting. But there’s a handlebar-mounted LED headlight at the end of the tunnel.

(The Quasimodo effect is due to the XXL hoodie sweatshirt left over from my heavier days.)
