Look what happened this morning,,,, if you dare.

by trikeman   February 16, 2012  

Hi All,
I was looking forward to an early morning ride when I duly tripped down the stairs and landed 'awkward' = result,,, foot at 90' to the right and broken lower tibia and ankle. Never broken a bone before and wouldn't wish this on an enemy.
Told it will be about six weeks before I clip my shoes into the pedals - Gutted, new bike, new wheels reasonable weather forecast and here I am stuck sitting down with leg elevated reading every section of this website.
Sad
Enjoy, Trikeman. Wink

Hmmmm I believe it could have been the excess hair on your leg that caused the fall Wink

But get well soon

You have my sympathies Trikeman, it gets frustrating watching and reading without doing!

Swift healing.

Downhill bikes don't make you cool.

Nasty mate, hope you get better soon.

Look on the bright side though if you can stretch it out till middle April you will get to watch the classics.

There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.

You could try other sports like: Darts, Snooker, Chess, Bridge, Ludo, Bowls, Cake-making. Thinking

Or get a hand cranked bicycle.

That was probably said in jest, but wasn't there something in CW about how training one leg can boost the other legs power?

Hi All,
nearly the end of day one, no bike, no fixing and stuck indoors,,,, Gutted.
Crying
Your comments have given me a good laugh though - especially the hand cranker. I could just see me on a contraption like that.

Regards

Trikeman. Wink

Grunt, puff, pant and groan goes the old man - but he gets there in the end. ;o)
