New Handlebar Basket

This is the first time that I have been able to ride my bicycle since Sunday’s ride around Presque Isle.

Apparently I overdid Sunday’s bicycle ride.  About 4 hours after coming home from Presque Isle, a muscle spasm in my left inner thigh hit me hard, as I began to stand up from a sitting position.  I felt good when bicycling Sunday and afterward, while on our way home.  The bicycle trail was flat for the most part.  It was a low-impact, not a strenuous, ride.  We made a few rest stops during our ride.  I drank plenty of water before, during and after bicycling.  I don’t feel I lack potassium.  A banana is a frequent snack.

Why do I get these “muscle spasms”?  I want to be active.  My body seems to want something different.  This muscle spasm was the second one I had in a week’s time.  The first one was in my left inner thigh, after walking almost 15,000 steps.  The spasm, then, happened about 4 hours after coming home too.  I was sleeping, when that spasm hit. 

After a muscle spasms, it takes several days before I am able to relax (to not fear another muscle spasm will hit) and get back to my “normal”.

It feels good to ride again, with less pain.

I wanted to show you my new bicycle accessory.
