Will the real MrDaveyGie please stand up

Ok, Ok, I have something to get off my chest, and tell the truth. That picture that I said was me yesterday, was a FAKE!!!!! Yes, I know I shouldn't fool you like that, you won't know what to believe anymore. No more fake pictures.

My back is getting better, slowly. I put a suspension elastomer seat post on my Cycle Cross borrowed from my bike shop to ease the jarring on the spine for my ride tomorrow. I didn't want to lug the full suspension beast out, still with it's studded snow tires on from last winter. Too heavy. So I am ready, to see if these old bones can pump out a dirt century tomorrow. I tried it out riding out in the neighborhood tonight, it didn't bother the back, and my legs are more then ready, riding on curbs and through some yards, I could feel the fun.
The one thing that surprised me most for not riding for 5 days is how fast I can put on weight. It's funny the less physically I do the more I eat. You would think that not doing much, you wouldn't feel like eating much. Perhaps it's the edginess of not getting my riding "fix" that makes a me shove to much food in my gullet. I am kinna ashamed at this picture, but I want to be brutally honest. Here I am. I'll wear it off this week hopefully.

Over and out, and go out and play.

Just kidding, please go easy ok? Be kind to your body.

Looking good Dave, that weight should help on the downhills. Have a good ride, and take it easy.
