After a lot of deep therapeutic massage , I got back on my bike this week. On Saturday , DH and I went for a ride along the Tees as I wanted to see if the fly tipping has been removed. It hasn’t.
however, I wasn’t very fast and DH was cold , so he started to push me. Something, he has done many times. he forgot that DS1 had attached another rear view mirror to his handlebars and that intertwined and before we knew it, we were both in a pile up. it could have been worse as at least it was a fairly soft landing in grass and mud but I knew something wasn’t right. DH was ok and he untangled me from the bikes but I was in no condition to ride. this has never happened before. we started to walk but decided it was better for him to go home and get the car and pick me up. he suggested the Lidl carpark.
so I carried on walking along the river, up the ramp to Newport bridge and then to the car park. I waited and waited, no sign of him and no answer on his phone. eventually I rang home and DS1 came out for me and picked me up on Union street as I had to keep walking to stay warm. DH didn’t think I would make it that far so he had gone closer to the river and walked along as he couldn’t see me. Turns out , in his concern to be back with me, he had left his phone in his handlebar bag , so didn’t have it.
anyway, the upshot was, I had to go to hospital and I have broken my left clavicle (collarbone) so no more riding for 4-6 weeks. YTD mileage 4150 miles.
Today Sunday, we celebrate 45 years of marriage. I have sewed him a waistcoat and bowtie.
so I might not have much to post about for the rest of the year, have a lovely Christmas season however you do or do not celebrate.
