As it turned out the shoulder didn't heal very quickly (partly my fault because I continued with plans to drive to Switzerland and Tuscany in the following weeks, and kept doing household chores, mowing grass, toting heavy grocery bags, etc). I kept ice on it much of the time and took aspirin for the pain.
Anyway it felt good enough today to try a ride up the little hill to Grizzo. I was too slow to catch a pack from GC Meschio on the ride home, but still felt good to be riding again. I'll try to post some ride reports in coming weeks- I'm reading a book about World War I on the Italian-Slovenian border so I'm itching to go riding near the Soça River area.
