Gov. Ritter back at Capitol after bike accident

Gov. Bill Ritter held his first news conference after his bike accident last week and says he's in pain, but recovering.

The governor signed 28 bills on Wednesday, most of them to fix this year's budget. He also met with his staff at the Capitol.

Ritter says he expects to resume his full schedule next week.

Ritter was one of five people bicycling March 2 when his wheel hit the wheel of a man in front of him. The fall required Ritter to be hospitalized.

The other cyclist had a minor wrist injury.
