    shit luck dude, that sucks

    try to keep a check that it heals with the bone aligned as a couple of friends have healed with a horrendous step to it requiring surgery and pins/plates later on, speak to the consultant about a figure of eight traction strap to pull you into correct posture to aid healing – i know jack shit – just useful tips from others

    get riding soon

    Unlucky mate. Heal quick.

    Get & tidy that garden up,you can still do it with one arm 😉
    ****sends healing vibes too****

    well just after the rock garden at slaughterhouse combe there is a flat bit. Shane went off first and I followed. I came over the brow to find him on his knees. I thought he was going to take a photo until I got closer ! After removing his camelbak it was clear his collar bone was bust, poking up under his skin. A few miles from the car too ! Looks like his rear wheel hit a rock and threw him over the bars. I made him a sling out of my jacket and we walked back then drove on to A&E. Bummer.

    ohflippin’eck Sharki, bad luck. ask for a mid-term physio appointment if it’s not offered, on the basis of your occupation, and because you ride. female physios are frequently quite tidy IME…

    thanks all, i’ve got the fracture clinic on friday, hopefully they’ll plate it as at the mo it’s not inline and there’s quite a step there….
    Just as i was starting to feel my fitness was getting there too…
    Chunky, i’m right handed!
    Expect to see me out on the trails walking and taking pics alot over the next month or so..
    How did it happen?
    Not giving 100% concentration on a fast bit of single track, out of the saddle on the flat didn’t spot a large rock in the ground, forks eat it up, rear suss didn’t, with, slight weight forward position the rear kicked up fast, i had no time to react, landed on shoulder, smashing down on the side of my head, slight crunching noise on moving said enough, and on touching my collarbone the break was prominent…then knottie caught up;-)

    Jeez Sharki – sorry to hear – thats unlucky after such a great day yesterday. The highs and the lows eh! Will lean a bike on a post to conjure healing vibes Quantocks stylee – apparantly the solution to anything – get well soon chap.

    Just get your sorry behind up here sharki – you will be fine on the back of the tandem with one working arm. I promise not too many “interesting” trails

    i landed somewher e on my shoulder i assume, tnen twatted the side of me heed and now i have to try to type left handde.
