I'm back and isnt it great!

Hi all, i'm back after a long break from cycling, due to a really bad cycling accident. Well i say cycling, but actually i was carrying my folder from the shed, i dropped the bike lock, slipped on it and went flying. I landed badly and tore all the muscles in my right shoulder! They do say accidents happen at home!

On top of that my wifes been ill (flu) and i've had to ferry my son around by taxi (yuck). Today was my first day back on the bike for about 4 weeks. I found it was daylight! That was nice! It also appears to be spring! As soon as i left the village, I saw red deer (i havent seem them all winter), 3 hares playing in the next field and a fox loping across the next field. Ah its great to be back!

Welcome back to good health! Just in time for spring it sounds like. If I had to pick a time of year in which to be injured it would be the middle of winter!

Glad to see you up and posting again- Knowing my luck I'd do the same thing in June or something...

Welcome back! I've also been on a bike hiatus of sorts, so as soon as I get back from a vacation in denver I'm going to use you as an inspiration and end the hiatus.

That's quite the accident you describe. It would be hysterical if it didn't sound so painful!

Thanks for the welcome back guys. Your right it would have been much worse in June..

And yes it was painful , i cried like a baby (or toddler) until the painkillers took effect.
