Was good to see you too.

And you'll be pleased to hear that I got 2 QOM's on our way out back to see you (well, one actually. Eleri got the other one until I stole it from her on my commute on Wednesday)...

Michele and I had an uplifting visit with Greg last night. Like all of us, we have been worried about the outcome of his monumental prang.

We entered The Royal Rehab at 259 Morrison Road Ryde last night around 6.30, after getting in touch with Paul and making a booking as suggested.

He is looking great and making terrific progress. Greg has a full dance card of physiotherapy to help him out and he really throwing himself into it. We spent the visit on our feet and walking about. He is really getting strength back.

Greg enjoys having visitors. He also wants to borrow the following DVDs:

Any good sport stuff, especially cycling,

Comedy or lightstuff,

and Fishing.

So have a look through your collections.

When we were there another visitor appeared, Chris from the day of the Johnny Warren. He was with Greg and two other carers til the ambulance appeared, and had been wanting to connect up with him. Through Paul he found out where Greg was.

A very lively conversation ensued. It looks like Greg's adventure has brought many people together and this says a lot about Greg as a person. I thought we might get thrown out for laughing so much.

So go and visit when you can. He thinks he will be there for another 4-6 weeks.

Tried to book Greg today, but there's no real timeslot available.

The good news is that Greg will be home on the weekend.

He will be back in rehab for weekdays, so I'll try and book for another day.

Great to see you back on a saddle, of sorts, Greg.
What's the training program - just k's, or more specific - cadence, hill repeats...?
Look forward to seeing you post-Ryde.

found Greg at the top of a leader board!
i recon Greg needs a few STRAVA segments for the hospital. I'd love to see Greg smash them as the physio work pays off.

Rolling back home after Waterfall along the Cooks River path this morning a familiar voice said "Hi John". It was Greg. I stopped and had a chat. He was out walking with a friend and is in training for the....

City to Surf :D . He plans to walk the 14 kms and his training is going well. He will be unable to ride an upright bike for a year (doctor's orders), but don't be too surprised to see him turn up to Slowies on a recumbent.

Though he still has a long way to go, every time I see Greg he looks better.

Hey Guys

Just a quick note to let everyone know I returned to 2 wheels yesterday. Just a 6 km chug along the Cooks River on a mates mountain bike rather than a roadie, but it was a bloody nice step on the way back.

Cheers
Greg
