Returned to the bike today. My orthopod said the MRI showed no flaps in the meniscus, which had been the concern, so there's no need for surgery. He prescribed an anti-inflammatory called Voltaren (Diclofenac) and I'm going to go see him for a review in a few weeks.

So with a bit of trepidation I was back on the bike this afternoon on the Montour Trail. The knee felt good, and the legs felt good. In the previous two weeks I've only ridden once, and that day was ten days ago. So the first time back on the bike was good.
It was really a nice ride, I was out later in the gloaming twilight. I did see a unicyclist riding a 26" wheel with some great lights (front and back) on his helmet. It was cool to see a unicycle rigged for night-time riding.
I did see a few riders that were using a white blinky "see-me" light on their handlebars, they were all pretty effective.
