Like Nancy, I still try to ride my bike several times a week. The weather here in northern California is quite mild during winter months, so it's hard to resist. Got to admit it hurts like heck, but the positives so far outweigh the negatives. My quality and quantity of sleep is much improved after even a short 10-mile ride, and I can also cut back on the amount of pain meds, too.
But even more, riding gives me some sense of normality and raises my spirtits immensely. Not sure how long I'll be able to keep it up, but I'm grateful for the times I can. And to think, three years ago I was cycle-touring in mountainous terrain in France and Italy. Think this is what they call playing with what you have left?!
