- First ride.
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.
 try spinning a bit more 60 is pretty low cadence 😉Posted 7 years ago

I was pleased to get up there without stopping. 😀
you’re forgiven then 🙂Posted 7 years ago
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 🙂Posted 7 years ago

Great news!Posted 7 years ago

Bravo .Posted 7 years ago
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! 🙂Posted 7 years ago
Wow – that’s fantastic news
i can’t even imagine how the first 5 minutes of riding must have felt – good on you pal 😀Posted 7 years ago
I got a spare stone you can have 😳
Well done thoughPosted 7 years ago
I’ve got a few (ahem 😳 ) lbs you can have too
Good news fellaPosted 7 years ago
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 youPosted 7 years ago
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.Posted 7 years ago
Dibbs , Im willing to bet you can still kick my butt around the Qs ! Chuffed for you mate.Posted 7 years ago
Awesome news! Well done fella!Posted 7 years ago
34 sessions of radiotherapy
Presumably you won’t need lights for night-riding then !Posted 7 years ago
Congratulations on getting through that lot

nice onePosted 7 years ago
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.Posted 7 years ago
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.Posted 7 years ago
You’ve done more miles in a day than I have in a week. 🙂
