Bronchitis? Check.

Sinus infection? Check.

A negligent training schedule (total pre-ride mileage = 7) due to business trips and the aforementioned illnesses? Check.

Bike New York? Sure, why not.

Despite these obstacles, my uncle (a first-timer who did splendidly) and I enjoyed a lovely day of biking throughout the city's five boroughs. We had terrific weather and an uneventful ride, albeit with a little more standing around and walking with the bikes than we'd have liked. Although the frequent stoppages were annoying, that's probably what helped me save enough energy to make this year's climb up the Verrazano the easiest of any of my Bike NY rides.

Now I must sleep.

Until Tuesday.
