Went out yesterday to ride my local downhill track. After doing a few runs down it, hitting 25ft tabletops, 5ft drops and rock gardens, I decided to have a go at the beginner line. My pedal hit a treestump and my front wheel bashed into a root sending me over the bars and onto my shoulders and face pretty damm hard.
Sometimes it is the easy stuff that catches you out.
After going to A&E I found out I have snapped the end of my collar bone off, broke it in the middle and dislocated my shoulder. Bah humbug, no riding for 6 weeks.
Who else has the torture of not being able to ride?
