- 6 weeks off the bike…
Following my freefall from a loft ladder last weekend i’ve now been told to keep off the bike for a minimum of 6 weeks.Posted 8 years ago
In my cycling life i’ve never had that sort of time away from the bike….its going to feel slightly strange I guess.
Yeah, it sucks.Posted 8 years ago
Six months and counting herePosted 8 years ago
The injury is not as bad as first thought, still 2 fractures and displacement…..no cast or surgery required….plenty of exersises…and must not lift anything heaver than a cup of tea.Posted 8 years ago
You still working? Restricted duties presumably if you can’t lift more than a cuppa!Posted 8 years ago
It’s a big bugger Mark, back to work on tuesday, light duties only….answering phone, making hot drinks will be my limit……and with practice lefthanded wheelbuilding.Posted 8 years ago
I’m just about to finish week 6. It’s been pretty tough. I’m looking forward to riding lots of xc and mincing along the trails for a bit 😆Posted 8 years ago
i pulled a tendon/ligament in my left knee a month or so back. didn’t realise it at the time. two weeks ago i set off on a transalp ride i had to quit on after the second day. really fegging hurt.
been popping dicolfinac (sp?) pills and rubbing in gels for the last 10 days.
rode into twon yesterday (35km there and back) and could feel the pain in my knee again.
can’t do anything other than sit down and rest. it’s quite depressing.
