Thursday evening I banged up the outside of my left knee. I was hobbling around on foot Friday, and while I felt OK on the 6-mile round trip ride to work, standing up and pedaling out of the saddle was painful.
The upshot: I’m not doing the 200K brevet today. I’m disappointed but I have no interest in making a minor injury into a major one. It’s a beautiful day, so I’ll go out for a shorter ride and see how that feels.
