Kindle, alcohol, walking. All is not lost it’s nice in the Alps. Where are you staying. If you’re anywhere near Les Arcs go here and have a proper amazing meal, give you something to do eh http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g608820-d1339255-Reviews-Restaurant_L_Ancolie-Nancroix_Peisey_Vallandry_Savoie_Rhone_Alpes.htmlPosted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Look on the bright side, we met a feller at les arcs who’d broken his by 11am on day one of his holiday- and he’d probably spent most of that time on lifts too.
Yeah, go walking, eat food, drink wine, I wouldn’t swap places with you but I always get back from a cycling holiday wishing I’d seen more of the area, done some touristing, gone for a wander…Posted 4 years agosoobaliasMember
two ibuprofen and half a pint of mtfu.
relax and take in the scenery. i had a week of pool/beach holiday two weeks after breaking my arm. never ever again, if i had known how painful and frustrating it was going to be i would have stayed at home on my own.Posted 4 years ago
but you are there already.metalheartSubscriber
Having dislocated a finger (which needed an op to reseat) in a motel car park in Utah 30 minutes before we were due to leave on a 5 day supported trip in the mountains I can feel your pain!
On the bright side you’ll still be able to hang with yer mates when they’re not riding and the external temp won’t hit 40 deg. C everyday so you won’t need to spend most of your time holed up in a shitty motel room watching shitty us tv!
Make the most of it (but don’t overdo the alcohol, it’s too easy to hurt yourself further!).
But yeah, it sucks…Posted 4 years agoOrmanCheepMember
I’m in a similar boat boat.
Spent the last 9 months organising a stag weekend to the Alps, having a day of via ferrata, and a day of biking.
Went the off-road route on my commute home last night (with my road tyres on). Got caught in a downpour, and the bike slipped from under me on a tree route. Couldn’t clip out quickly enough, and my dodgy knee is a whole lot dodgier. I’m desperately trying to get it sorted in time for the weekend.
A couple of the guys on the do are GPs so going to see about getting some horse strength ibubrofen.Posted 4 years agofreddygMember
In an attempt to make you feel better, at least you got some riding in…
A few years ago I used to do a lot of scuba diving. The week before a much anticipated trip[ to the Red Sea, my Wife and I took all our kit down to Stoney Cove for a final check out before packing it up. The one piece of kit I used but wasn’t testing was my dry-suit. The auto vent failed shut (this is bad) on ascent from the dive resulting in a rapid ascent. I ended up with a mild “bend” and two days in Hull in and out of the decompression chamber. After which I was passed fit to fly (and therefore travel) but not fit to dive for a couple of months.
The result was the insurance company wouldn’t cover me (as I was fit to travel) so I spent a week sitting in a hotel listening to the epic dives enjoyed by the other residents, while feeling perfectly fit. Great.Posted 4 years agopoonpriceMember
Gutted for you, hope its not a bad break.
It’s took me 5 months to get the bloody NHS to fix mine and their finally going to operate in a couple of weeks. Sucks further that I have been able to ride with it snapped in 3 pieces for most of the summer but know in a couple of weeks time i’ll be back to square one and off my bike for a couple of months.Posted 4 years agothejesmonddingoMember
Broke mine 5 miles from home about 8 weeks ago.If they’ve given you a triangular bandage as a sling,get to a pharmacie and get some thing like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/PhysioRoom-Deluxe-Elite-Shoulder-Immobiliser/dp/B00DCQNQU0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1378824917&sr=8-1&keywords=sling+clavicle it’s tons more comfortable and supportive,and you may feel a bit more like sightseeing.I’d recommend regular paracetamol and ibuprofen for the first few days,and codeine at night will help you sleep.Posted 4 years ago
