    Rider Down

    Although I'll not divulge all the details here (not my place to make this information public), there is an Eastern Canada forum member undergoing extremely serious surgery tomorrow (Tuesday) and I wanted to make a quick appeal for cyber-healing vibes.

    Get well soon!

    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    Exactly saturnine, could be some drunk driving or consequences of asinine acts involved.

    At any rate, it's too bad somebody got hurt(riding i guess?). Hope they're better soon and get to eat lots of jello and popsicles!

    My bad... Not self-inflicted and not a riding injury. Sudden and surprising diagnosis would best describe it.

    It's me. It's heart surgery. It's at 11:30 today. All thoughts, prayers, vibes and whatever else you might have will be appreciated.

    Apologies to any of my friends if you are finding out for the first time on here. I have no secrets about this amongst friends, but the details about the last few weeks are a bit "heavy" for mtbr and/or FB. I've tried to get as many personal emails out as possible, but my energy has been somewhat limited. If you want more details contact the usual suspects.

    Know this: I'm receiving the best possible care. And I will be back to wreak havok on the trails once again.

    As a fellow member of the Bar, this could be my cue to make a bunch of lawyer jokes (ie are you having your heart removed? etc etc) but I will take the high ground and wish you the very best and a speedy recovery. We'll look forward to seeing you on the trails and putting the hurt on the rest of us in the singlespeed category very soon..
    Strava made me do it....

    Silly GM, expecting the best from the interwebs. I know it'll go swimmingly, smarty, and now you'll have more bragging rights than anyone. As if crushing on a SS or while towing a daughter wasn't enough!

    Don't think I said the ailments of the 99% are self inflicted, hope your not saying that.
    The line is actually a direct plagiarism of my Dad when I would have a hangover
