Well I wanted to give everyone an update. I reached my nieces house in Texas on Saturday the 12th. From there I took my bicycle to Handlebar Cyclery in Richmond TX, (http://www.bicycleshopkatytx.com/) just west of Houston. The reason for this is that Shimano is providing parts for my bike overhaul and this is the shop they picked. Handlebar is helping by providing very discounted labor to support my trip. So I want to thank both Shimano and Handlebar Cyclery for helping me out and thus helping Ride 2 Recovery.
Since my bike will be in the shop for a bit I decided to take my sister up on her offer to come to her house for Christmas. So I flew back to Maryland on Monday the 14th. I want to thank her for the offer and it is really nice to be able to spend time with family for Christmas. Both my boys were nice enough to support my decision to come to my sisters rather than back to Colorado. I love you Aaron and Joshua.
My only issue is that I will be off the bike for just over two weeks. I don't think it will but I sure hope a break this long does not derail my ride. I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.
