I’M BACK!

Whoo Hoo. Managed to get enough bend in the knee to mount the bike. Had a little trundle around the back yard then buggered off down the road.
Half hour later I returned home with a big grin on my face and a bollocking from our lass!
Bliss!

Back in the game!
Had a bit of light off-roading today. Came back a bit achy only to have a call from a colleague saying I can go back on the work off road team.
I’m getting giddy now!

After a few months hassle free off/ on road biking I came a cropper yet again but through no fault of my own.
I was approaching a left hand bend in the pouring rain. I adjusted the speed prior to going in to the bend and had just turned in to the bend when a car came from the opposite direction way over the white line. Fortunately I wasn’t going too fast and I tried to brake but locked up and the bike laid down. I scudded on the road for about 10 metres and the bike for 15 metres. A broken finger,bruised knee and elbow and about £2.50 damage later I realised that the driver had just buggered off.
I picked the bike up and it started first go. There is some scratching to the frame on the right side and the mirror is knackered but hey ho testament to the robustness of the mt 350.
And me lol.

I know the feeling. I fell off my bicycle in France and have fractured my right hand which is proving slow to heal. Very frustrating..
