The Low Road

I’m scheduled for surgery on Thursday, March 15 to have my ACL reconstructed. This will be followed by a recovery period of about six months. I don’t mind being cut up, but I’m not looking forward to being a gimp for months on end (although I should be able to resume cycling in some form after a couple of months). So I was hoping I might coax some cyclists who’ve been through this before to post and tell me how they incorporated cycling into their recovery.

I had the surgery back in 1990. During the PT I rode a stationary bike. This was before I really rode other than on vacation. So I am sure that it could easily be included in your PT routine. New Haven is such a great city you know you can make routes that will be right for your progress.
Life will be much better once you get this done.
