    Bummer dude

    the nurse in the ER says when she sees me hobble in, all twisted and grimacing, bicycle?, she asks, knowingly.

    Surly CxC on the road, fill moon ride to a nice trail / bike path through the ferns and oaks. Never made it there; hit a 6x5x5 rock that blended in with the pavement. OTB at 25mph = hemotoma on knee and broken clavicle. 4-6 weeks of no riding. have to see the orthopedist to make sure no more damage.

    1- left leg immobilized
    2- right leg scraped
    3- arm sling and strapped down
    4- saline, antibiotic, morphine went here (almost passed out when stuck suction in knee)
    5- bruise on right hand from brake hood???

    No good

    Damn! that sounds so familiar..

    Almost exactly like it happened to me recently, except mine was on the trail in the late afternoon, and I didn't [thank God] break anything.

    Get well soon, brother.

    It is inevitable ...
