For exercise, I rode for 30 minutes on the bike trainer this morning. There were a few sharp twinges in the hip initially, but when warmed up, the pain was very low-level. I remain optimistic about coping with the demands of everyday biking when we leave next week, and will have those anti-inflammatories for backup.
