- anyone else laid up ?
started with headaches, stomach cramps and aches 2 week ago. soon turned to very raw throat and hacking cough.
went to see the doctor after a week. it had turned into bronchitis.
finished a course of antibiotics yeaterday. still poorly.
and all this bloody good weather isnt helping me at all. mood is darker than ever.
enjoy your easter people…….. ;o(Posted 1 month agoschmikenSubscriber
Yep. Got bitten by an insect two weeks ago but suddenly swelled up, and turned into a case of cellulitis.
Had an operation on Wednesday and have been in hospital since last Sunday. The biggest piss take is that I’m a teacher and this has sucked up my holiday time!

Was getting back to something approaching normal riding after a knee replacement that didn’t go as planned and took a long time building up a 2nd hand Ritchey Road Logic to rekindle the road love. Came off first ride out when front wheel washed out after oil on the road. Fractured collar bone, fractured hip and bruised ribs but luckily bike not too bad! Also glad I was wearing the knee pad. Totally bored now.Posted 1 month agoMing the MercilessSubscriber
Stupid cold for last 4 weeks, just getting over it and now stuck in work trying not to break things (and failing) for 2 x 12 hr days and then lates.
Guess what, my 5 rest days after this it’s raining and the commissioning OT Sunday shift in a weeks time is now cancelled.
On the + side I’ve just been emailed a picture of my new Curtis being built!Posted 1 month agocentralscrutinizerMember
I’m going round the bend with boredom and frustration.Posted 1 month ago
+ I’ve found loads of ways of making it worse :
Checking Strava to see what a good time all my friends are having.
Watching MTB trail vids on You Tube.
Going for a walk around the local riding area and seeing how fantastic the trails look 🙂handybarMember
Yep, another bed-day for me, as I was out and about yesterday and my knee pain has flared up.Posted 1 month ago
Knee surgery probably about 3 months away now, so I’m expecting this year to be very horizontal overall.
Bumped into some mountain bikers in the pub the other day and said I’d join them for some rides in about a year if all goes to plan. I’ve not been out on the mountain bike for about four years now.longdogMember
Yup. Finally got my CT cardiac scan on Thursday (been waiting 5.5 months!) So maybe another 3-4 weeks til I see my consultant for results and to see whats what. expecting stents. Meanwhile medication is making feel crap, can’t and not allowed to ride and even a steady wander is really too much 🙁Posted 1 month agon0b0dy0ftheg0atMember
Throat red raw, disguised by thick phlegm, physically fatigued like I’ve done some big rides back to back. Caught from family just in time for this nice weather Easter weekend, managed to do a gentle ride yesterday, but really struggled to get through today including work. Expecting to be in bed soon, shattered.Posted 1 month agoglobaltiMember
Yes, busted clavicle last August, three months of non-union, plated in November, was beginning to get out on the bike then I had a capsule release op for the frozen shoulder two weeks ago. The surgeon said: “If you think two broken ribs and a clavicle were painful, wait ’til you experience this!” and he wasn’t wrong, it hurts like **** especially when I’m doing my stretches to keep it from re-freezing while it heals.
If I’m back to full fitness a year after the accident I’ll be happy. All this for a moment of recklessness.Posted 1 month agohandybarMember
Been bed-bound since friday, decided I was going stir crazy so popped out to closest (but horrible) pub for a pint.Posted 1 month ago
Bloody hell, wish I hadn’t. Horrible people in the pub, crazy bloke over the road f-ing and blinding into his phone, then a bloke opens his car-door on me as I’m riding home.
I’ve never liked this bank holiday weekend!
