    I finished 34 sessions of radiotherapy last Wednesday and I’ve just returned from my first (gentle) ride in one piece.
    Now all I have to do is regain some fitness and some of the stone and half of weight I’ve lost. 😕

    Being back riding is great news Dibbs 🙂

    The fitness etc will come in time, I’m sure.

    [edit] try spinning a bit more 60 is pretty low cadence 😉

    60 is pretty low cadence

    It’s a pretty steep hill and I ran out of gears 😉
    I was pleased to get up there without stopping. 😀

    you’re forgiven then 🙂

    Nice one Dibbs keep up the good work mate & we must have a ‘remission riders’ ride on the Q’s sometime soon …. as long as you wait for me @ the top of the hill 🙂

    the stone and half of weight I’ve lost

    No one likes a gloater.

    😉

    Great news!

    Well done as someone whose had treatment I know it can be tough to get fit again, hang in there and listen to your body. Remember that your body’s been though a lot and that rest is a valid part of your training/fitness plan! 🙂

    Slaps back in a not too hard sort of way 🙂

    Putting weight back on is brilliant. More cream on your breakfast cereal? I think I might just thank you

    I don’t think I could have done better as I am just trying to get back into it and I haven’t just finished radio therapy.

    Spectacularly good news, have to see if I can keep up.

    34 sessions of radiotherapy

    Presumably you won’t need lights for night-riding then !
    Congratulations on getting through that lot

    I’ve just got back from my second ride, it’s taken me 4 days to recover from the first (easy) ride 😳 hopefully it won’t take so long this time.
    The radiotherapy has killed a lot of my saliva glands and the dry mouth is quite unpleasant, I think the Camelback will be needed even on short rides.

    Well done that man.
    You’ve done more miles in a day than I have in a week. 🙂
