Iv'e just had the results from a bone scan.
I rode 38 miles after falling off with 5 broken ribs and a badly bruised hip.

A great weekend.
Friday night social .. was brilliant, good friends, good food and lots of laughs .
Ride out was great. An excellent 50 mile route by Kev and lunch by the canal was welcome ... and V nice!
Julie, Linda, Chelle and Nick, and Connor went to the National Memorial Arboretum.
10 minutes of rain during the ride, just long enough for Pete to get his rain jacket on ... and off again ....
We met back at the hotel just after 1400hrs, in time for Kev, David and Pete to traumatise the rest of the customers in their dirty, smelly Lycra.

OK my Strava didn’t record the mileage or elevation today. Can I manually record it? I know it was only 8 miles but I’m going to struggle to get 100 in this week and every little helps...

Yes! I once did it for a ride that didn't record. :?
Look at the top right of the screen (on PC but don't know about a mobile.) and press on the '+' . A drop down menu includes "add manual entry" and that should allow you to add a ride.
I am struggling to do 100 miles/month at the moment :(
Leave getting old to others.
