Ice is good advice.

Also, an easy walk around the neighborhood tonight and a very gentle ride tomorrow and the next day will help improve circulation and healing. Light stretching before bed will help you to be less stiff in the morning.

Welcome to the club, poster's wife!

A tradition where I ride is that whoever has the most bodily damage from the ride gets treated to beer and cookies. Don't let your husband off the hook with this one!

London Luton - Rotterdam, operated by Transavia. They usually have cheap flights. On the other hand you can also take a flight to Amsterdam - Schiphol and then take a train to Rotterdam, which is only 52m. Check http://www.ns.nl for trains (schiphol - rotterdam) "plan uw reis". A day return ticket "vol tarief" is 20.10, if you need to come back another day, it's twice 10.70.

This is one way, or the more fun way is go to Hull or Folkstone and get a ferry to Rotterdam. I've looked into some VLM flights about 10 days ago and its £114 return (including taxes and charges) though that is from Manchester, not sure if it is the same from London Luton.

Or for flights, fly to Frankfurt or Hamburg and get the train to Rotterdam

A little ice in a glass, some whiskey, ice on the injury, a little more ice in the glass and a little more whiskey...repeat until you are gone.

This is how I medicate almost any trauma--physical or otherwise--that I suffer.

...Lookin to do it tonight.

My recommendations:

Whiskey: Maker's Mark or Blanton's
Whisky: Laphroaig 10 year

try the quarter cask, very similar price, but much better characteristics.. the extra contact with the barrel smooths it slightly and gives it more of that linseedy, salty seaweedy edge that laphroig is so famous for..

as an addendum, the wife has asked me to express her dissapointment at the lack of interest in her (as she puts it) "ladythigh"

Yeah, the Ferry is a good option as well. I used Stena Line a couple of times, and it arrives in Hoek van Holland. From there it's only a short ride by train (in my case included, and 'for free' in the cost of the Ferry ticket, as well as the train ride from London to the harbor in the UK) to Rotterdam. The tickets then were dirt cheap...

Frankfurt and Hamburg are a little out of the way though. I'd go for direct rotterdam ferry or flight or Amsterdam and train...

First stage is due to be a prologue length TT. Won't start till about 4pm, so you will have plenty of time to get a position. In Monaco, I arrived at 11am walked around a bit met up with a couple of people then took my first spot 150m from the start and there was a lot of space. Its about 20 days now till initial flight times and costs are released anyway, so i'd hold on till then to look and consider what you will do.

My wife calls it "paying the skin tax" and usually she's not very pleased about it, althought she brags about it all the time.
