A Second, More Successful, VASTLY More Enjoyable Return to Cycling with Covid


July 2022

I know, I know, I said I was going to take a little more time off in yesterday’s post…

My low-grade fever broke (99.4, I usually run about 97.8) early yesterday morning. As the day wore on and I felt better, taking the tandem out for a spin with my wife looked pretty fantastic. She’s two days ahead of me, as our bouts with Covid went, so she feels a couple of days better than I do. She also wanted a nice, slow, short return to riding so the tandem was the perfect choice.

We only did eleven miles at 15-ish-mph, but that was perfect. My lungs didn’t bother me a bit and we had a lovely conversation along the way.

I also brought Gatorade with me in lieu of my normal plain water. That agreed with my throat a little more than anticipated.

And so it was, my wife and I out on the tandem for a short little spin to shake the cobwebs out. There’s no place I’d rather have been. It was beautiful.

Life on two wheels is a blessing.

    Glad you’re feeling better. We’ve had a bunch of people here who have been sick with COVID recently. We had a family get-together on Saturday, and my stepdaughter tested positive on Sunday. Fortunately, we got a PCR test yesterday and we’re OK, but it was scary because I had symptoms. Even though this is not bad compared to the early variants, it’s still enough to be a major problem. I’m glad I don’t have to spend two weeks off the bike recovering.
