Rehab you say??? That’s right- shoulder rehab! Down in Costa Rica I crashed HARD. And broke the front of my scapula! Recovery is important, especially when it’s right in the middle of the summer, and over the years I have indeed stumbled across a few tips to hasten the process!

Cardiovascular exercise drastically improves recovery time- blood flow is really important! I spin twice a day on my trainer. Speaking of trainer, there’s a way to retrofit a modern 148×12 bike to fit via modifying an old QR skewer. Use an Ibis axle ( with that cut skewer at the ends and BOOM- immediate trainer compatibility!

In addition to good continued (and low impact) exercise, I also hit the gym as much as I can, eat lots of veggies, and minimize alcohol intake. Sleep is important too, but I haven’t got any of that for 20 months now.
