    Has your palm gone all hairy? Or has your eyesight diminished so you can't tell? :angry:

    Seriously though... *ouchie*

    Rest, heal & grow strong.

    Nasty nasty. Hope it gets better soon.
    When I was a much younger TimeLord I soon got the knack of surfing the interweb one handed...

    Looks sore! Did you loose your thumb at the same time?

    Swap yer brakes over on the Rat so you can use the front brake with your good hand - then you'll be fine to get back out on the bike. No problems.
    :sad:

    sort out the braking

    forearm is yellow with a lovely shades of blue and purple

    The front wheel drive recumbent does fit on
    the trainer
    so I'll be riding for 30minutes tonight in the
    spare room

    Get a tandem brake lever - they run two cables, so you can operate front and back off one lever. Did that for a one-armed guy at the workshop once.

    Been to the docs today
    He's saying with the damage that I have done to the hand it could be
    upto 3 months before I can even think about returning to work

    But I can ride the recumbent carefully .....yippee
