The operation on my right ankle three weeks ago is healing well, and I had 2 training rides Fri and Sat. The foot feels good. In a few hours time I will go for a hike with my friend Tienie Stofberg and we will see how that goes.
My bike need to be built. I am rebuilding the Merida Dual Susser from the frame up. New everything, except brakes (new pads), Front and back derailieur (new jockey wheels). The pedals (shimano spd 540) are still good to go. The wheelset is good, just new bearings. The rest is all new. New shifters, grips, tyres, BB bearings, Casset, chainrings, Complete pivot set rebuild, Front fork and back shock serviced by Johan Bornman from yellow saddle. New saddle (tried and tested type). Even new shoes, that I am using for both riding and walking, so I will hike with them tomorrow.
In the mean time I went for a PET Scan on Thursday and I am awaiting the results of that.
So for now my 3 priorities are:
- Getting my maps ready, so I know where to go.
- Getting my bike built, so have something to ride there with.
- Getting fitter so I can get there
