As some of you may have noticed, I haven’t posted any of my rides this week. Well, there’s a good reason…I can’t ride right now. We had a family get together on Sunday afternoon and I burned my right hand pretty good on a hot pan. I picked it up with a towel but it burned me right through it. The palm of my hand was singed a little but the worst damage was done to my middle and index fingers. The tips of both of those fingers were burned and I have another spot on the second joint of my middle finger. The locations (and pain) of the burns makes it near impossible to grip anything let alone hold onto a handlebar while riding. So, until these burns heal some (hopefully by Monday next week), I’m going to have to take some time off from riding.
