You are an inspiration! I too have disc problems and have had 3-fusions and 1 disc decompression surgery. Riding my bike is what keeps me going strong. I hope to ride for the rest of my life. I wish you the best, and please keep in touch. I'd love to follow along on your long ride. Ride on! And be safe out there!
