First ride since surgery

4 posts in this topic

In April I snapped my Achilles riding and had surgery a few weeks later. (weird freak accident on my bike) I spent 2 1/2 months with my left leg completely immobile below the knee. (see atrophy) 

Today was my first ride since surgery. My riding was horrendous,  but my ankle didn't hurt.

I'm super pumped,  had to share somewhere. I was crazy nervous before my ride.

First rides after an op are terrifying, glad it went well for you.  My trick was setting goals before going out, I knew if I didn't I would keep trying to go higher or spin more so it was a case of 'today I'm going to spin 180 degrees and go home at that point' :P

Yes dude. Always good to hear, especially with ankles. That fear before the first ride is real. :D

I hope I will never have to experience that fear of riding after surgery but well done for having it done!
