I am very sorry for not updating this blog for so long. I had a mishap while riding into Cleveland. After a rest day in Sandusky, I was riding along West of Cleveland across a RR bridge when my front tire got sucked into an expansion rail, which sent me flying off the bike. My head landed first, followed by my shoulder, then I rolled a bit on the pavement. Thank God for helmets!! I was stunned and could not get up for awhile. Help arrived very soon and Tom (our mechanic) took me straight to a nearby hospital where they took CT scans of my head & neck, and x-rayed my shoulder. Luckily I had no major damage. They patched up my scrapes and sent me off.
I have to say I have not been feeling too well the past few days. I have been dealing with pain, dizziness, and nausea. Took 2 full days off of the bike, then rode 60mi yesterday and 31mi today. After yesterdays ride I felt sickly, but today I just felt a bit dizzy. I will try to ride some more tomorrow and see how much I can do. I seem to be feeling a bit better tonight so if I get a good nights rest maybe I can get in some miles. Tomorrow is the big 100mi day into Gettysburg!
