Just to give you a bit of background I’m currently in Ohio.  I grew up here and like to come home to visit with family and my childhood chums.

Interesting couple of days here.  It’s been HOT (close to 90 degrees) and sunny and I received my first distance bicycling injury.

After the Towpath trail ride (Travel Graham 4-26-09) my right achilles tendon began to ache.   I kind of expected a few heiny-owies but sore achilles tendon?

So I spent the next couple of days taking it easy….. by hiking.

This is Dan. No fun stories about him. (unless you count the one where a friends mom during highschool took a LOT of interest in him. (if you know what I mean))

I going to give some riding a shot here soon and see what happens.

Has anyone else strained their achilles tendon on a bike ride?  Is there a probable cause?  Is it the swine flu?

Till later,

Jacque – Out

Edit: While on this trip I was hoping to find and/or stalk the creator of the Yehuda Moon comic strip.  It seems to be a bust.  I’ve e-mailed him a couple of times but no response.   Bummer, eh.

    Likely cause of the strained achilles tendon is that the saddle is a tad high. If you are extending your toes at the bottom of a pedal stroke, this will stress the tendon. I learned this on a cross-Washington trip. For short rides you won’t notice it. For “all day in the saddle” ordeals, it hurts. Lower the saddle a centimeter or so and it may go away.

    I agree with John. Though, it could still be swine flu. Ohio is close to Mexico, right? I don’t know. I was never good with Geometry.

    Outstanding information from John. Thanks. Yet another reason he’s so cool.

    Jeff, you’re a dork. As anyone can see Ohio and Mexico both have “O’s” in their name. But if you take the O from Mexico and put it in Ohio, you get Ohioo. And that’s how a person from Minnesota would say Ohio. And as anyone that knows geometrical mapping knows it’s no-where near Mexico. I’ll buy you a beer anyway.
