Stanford Wellness Bike Class 7/16 and 7/23

I have the honor of helping teach a short class for Stanford's Health Improvement Program a.k.a. HIP! Sign up if you are interested in joining the class, focussed on the novice, to learn basics about bike fit and types of bikes, and how to jump start commuting and using your bike for errands if not exercise and training! It's a two part class - the 2nd class we'll ride over to a bike shop and discuss the different new technologies and point out must-haves and nice-to-have, or luxury items vs need to have accessories to make your riding and lifestyle be safe and easy!

Old injury finally needing attention - Ankle surgery needed

Hi all -
Just thought I'd let you know why I haven't been riding too much lately. I can actually pedal a bike pretty well, its the walking to and from the trail, and hike-a-bikes that hurt me. An old sprain from '99 and '04 has finally started to cause toooo much pain. Some holes in my Talus w/ large cysts filling them are impeding at certain angles , especially painful if pushing down hard and in an incline w/ my foot. (Osteochondral lesions). Attached is a lovely iphone pic from my CT scan showing on the docs computer monitor.

I hope to line up surgery w/ Oakland's Bone and Joint Specialists - Dr. Roger Mann and his son.

If anybody does or doesn't like these guys... let me know! ;-)
