No Lima race for me.

Since my fall in the boat and my rib injury from landing on fish bucket I have not been on bike for over a week and a half now. So am going to have to call off going to Lima, OH to the flat track race's. There is no way I will be in shape to set up tent and sleep on the ground, even with air mattress. If I could manage to get down and in sleeping bag would never be able to get back up.
Ribs are getting better every day but not fast enough to make this trip in just over a week from now. I don't want any more set backs and mess up our trip to Glacier National Park and Sturgis toward the end of July. I think my cousin who lives in Washington state is going to try and meet us at Glacier NP.
Hope to be back on bike by next week. Really hate to miss this race, they put on a great show on that pea gravel track.

I totally understand all sides Jim. I had a similar thing last year with my melanoma removal. I could have made the trip down to Yellowstone but if something had gone sideways, it just wouldn't have been worth the risk. Better part of valor and all that; good choice.
Which reminds me, I have to go to a follow up with my dermatologist tomorrow. I think things are good, but I'll let the good doctor pass judgement.

Of course not, never been accused of being overly smart.

No one ever accused me of riding wearing any safety gear either.

Discretion is the better part of valor. Sorry you will miss the shorter trip but keep your eye on the big prize. Hope you heal up quick.
