With my new road bike (thanks again for the loaner, Ru!), I am out and about, trying to learn how to make tight turns and keep up my speed up and really push what my legs can do. I’ve done this for years on the mountain bike, and I know what it feels like to go over the handlebars or have my lungs scream for oxygen at 12,000 feet.

Trails Edge gave me the opportunity to write about pain this week, and it fanned out into seven different kinds of pain.
