Hmm. Interesting thread. Do you get 14 inch turbo trainer tyres? Afraid to let my progeny outside.
Well one benefit of my lad having injured himself is that he is now quite circumspect when cycling or skiing. Wisdom has arrived early.
Glad he's ok...
Things have changed.
I had a big tumble as a kid...one of thousands..i told the teacher I was in a lot of pain..
I was put in a 4 wheel kids trolley and taken off the field to the reception and left in the trolley legs and arms hanging over the sides..
Mum arrived..shouted at me for wasting her time..
Put in a car and off to A&E..more anger from mother..
4 hrs later I was in a full leg cast tib and fib fracture..concussion ..and severe sprain too my wrist...ahh well.
Training him well then, were his fist words "hows my bike ? "
GWS to mini dc !
Glad your son and the bike are ok. NHS doing their job again as usual and hope this bunch of government monkeys don't mess it up.
Kids are made of rubber. I know I certainly was given some of the accidents I walked away from.
Glad to hear he's on the mend, DC.
Get him back in the saddle asap.
Yes, first outdoor cross session of the year.
We were around around 11.30pm, no x-rays or CT scan due to his age just a lot of checking. Apart from him waiting a long while the doctor was kind - please pass on our thanks to Angela.
No to 14" turbo tyres but his club-mates ride rollers on 20" ones
Not yesterday but today on seeing his X-wing was "is that all the damage, it bounces well". I hadn't even posted a photo of the build.
We will. Whether he races on Friday at York is still to be seen depending upon recovery but he wants to as he wants to use this in anger for the first time:
OUCH!!!...........I really hated it any time I saw one of my kids get hurt so really feel for you. Glad the outcome has been a good one.
Ouch. GWS DCL Jnr.
And, what do you do when you fall off the bike? You get straight back on. Well, when your napper stops hurting, obviously.
Asked as a rhetorical question to Bruce Wayne, twice in the same film
I also thought of this Calvin & Hobbes cartoon
Kids, eh? They can put years on you......
I am pleased to read that he is not too badly injured.
I suspect the helmet data would be much clearer if the you restricted the population of studies to 12 year olds riding cyclocross.
Glad your son is OK and that you got out of A&E in good time. The NHS work miracles daily and do really seem to step up their game from excellent to outstanding, when it comes to kids.
Sorry to hear that.
Hoping for a good recovery.
