I was out cycling yesterday and realised it was a year a go to the day I had my nasty bike accident. Arms pretty much healed got around 90% movement back. Have still managed 34 rides over the year. But have been off it (bar two rides) since September, in order for my arm injury to heal. Now I have some new winter gear, am looking at going out as regular as I did before my crash. With a bit more awareness I might add. Reason for my post is, do not ride along thinking it won’t happen to you. I caught my back wheel on a bit of mud on the side of the road, and it took one second of not looking where I was going, moving my handlebars and bang! So, I know most of you probably do anyway, but please look at the road ahead, think about what kind of road you should be going in allowing for the winter weather. Most of all, staying safe.
