Rode out to Derwent Res today to see the Dambusters flypast. Met richpips in Hayfield, we rode up over Mount Famine and, descending Roych Clough, the front wheel hooked into a rut and highsided me, I landed right on the edge of my shoulder.
Picked myself up, walked down to the bottom where Rich was waiting. Pushed/rode up to Rushup Edge and stuck to the road after that riding down Winnats, through Hope, Thornhill and up the off-road trail up the right hand side of Ladybower. Watched the flypast from the Whinstone Lee Tor track, rode back down it then Rich headed off to pick his kids up from school and I rode to Edale for lunch at the cafe. Got the train home from there as everything was quite hurty by then.
Took myself off to the nice folk at Stepping Hill and they gave me an x-ray showing the neat inch of collarbone right at the end that's not attached to the rest of it.
Lessons learnt: don't ride 25 miles with a broken collar bone.
Still, got the Giro, Tour of California and Tour Series to keep me entertained. Dr reckoned 6 weeks off - there must be people who can give me more positive tales of recovery than that?
