Robb called me from the trail today because he wanted to share something with me. According to the odometer on his trike, he has now cycled ONE THOUSAND MILES.
I would be willing to bet that there aren't many fully able bodied readers of this blog who've cycled that much in the past thirteen months!
Very recently, Robb has regained enough foot and ankle strength to enable him to "clip into" his pedals normally. Up to this point, he relied on me to do this, and when I wasn't around, he untied his shoes, clipped them to the pedals, and then stuck his feet int his shoes. This, as you can imagine, was a tedious and time consuming procedure.
(Despite this fact, I believe that these photos were taken from the seat of the trike.)
Don't worry! We do know the difference between this harmless Pacific Gopher Snake and his venomous cousins.
