Nasty fall

Post by GrahamGamblin » 14 Jan 2017 19:10

Was looking forward to my first club run of 2017 tomorrow but took a tumble on the way home from work last night. Handlebar clipped a bollard and I hit the ground hard. Couple of hours in A+E, cracked ribs, bruised hip, and new helmet and jacket required. Feeling a bit sorry for myself but I guess it could have been worse. Now hoping I can make the audax in February rather than the B run tomorrow. :cry:

Ouch! Sorry to hear that Graham. I hope you recover soon and don't loose too much sleep when attempting to roll over in bed at night.

Back on the bike, albeit just riding to work and easy sessions on the turbo for now. Still a bit painful to breathe deeply or push hard, so no big hills for a bit!
