Sorry about the job thingy (I saw your response on it) ... and I hope you feel a bit better and don't get discouraged about the biking thing.

After spending 40 bucks yesterday on cab fare and train tickets...no.

Give it time...and consider cycling shorts, you will love the extra padding they offer!

I can do my work commute without 'em (10 miles each way) so I don't have the hassle of dealing with cycling shorts at work. But if I'm riding further than that my shorts save the day! :-)

Ouch!

Time to let the contact patch heal.

Years ago, I had a commute that involved being on a rail trail. I did not own a mountain bike at the time. One day, I was taking a little short cut that involved a short, steep, hard-packed dirt section. I don't remember exactly what caused it, but my bike stopped suddenly and my body did not. I was up out of the saddle. I contacted the stem with my nether regions. TOOK MY BREATH AWAY.

I made it to work. I couldn't tie my boots because I couldn't bend over. My boss - a man - gasped when I told him where I got hit. No one questioned my not tying my boots (or walking awkwardly) that day. I ended up with a 2" bruise in the area of my pubis bone. Ow, ow, and ow.

But it was almost worth it for the looks on the faces of my male co-workers when I described the incident. It didn't hurt me any where near as bad as it would have hurt a man, so they all envisioned how it would have felt to them, not me.

Love God. Love your neighbor. Change the world. It really is that simple.

I ended up with 12.5 mile on my bike the other day...I had a job interview a few towns away and since I am still without a vehicle, my super bright and super simple plan was to bike 4 miles to the train station, take the train, bike 2 miles to the business, 2 back to the train, and 4 home.

The most I have done before this is 4 or 5 miles and since I didn't have a problem with my nether regions, I thought I was safe from that.

I was mistaken.
