Sore. Having to wear a neck brace is a drag and I miss picking up the little one. I think my brain is starting to work again (although I doubt I’ll get Friday’s memories back). Could have been a lot worse!

Was this a crash or a hit by a car?

I think a car pulled out just in front of me. If it’s where I thInk it is I was probably doing around 50kph. Will pick up bike (and Garmin) from police soon.

Best wishes Karl.

Glad to hear things are improving. I'm not too far away from you so give me a shout if you need anything.

Cheers,

Passed the first 1000km on the new bike on the way to work yesterday morning.

Then rode home via the river, cuz it was Friday, and I could.

Disable etags on my optus member page for bna sigs. Hopefully they won't be wrongly cached now.

Damn. :( That's terrible luck and not a whole lot you could do about it.

Hope you mend quickly.

I'm up to 7282km so far. The new commute is nice - 11km each way and fairly peaceful. Loving not using trains or buses anymore.

Well on track for the end of the 5th month.

So also on track for 100,000m elevation :)

I am still in this, just very behind and now that the ski season is about to start the next 16 weekends will not be riding.

Haven’t had the bike checked out yet but my guess of 50kph was right so feeling unlucky that it happened but lucky with how it turned out. Pretty bad concussion.. I feel most of the way back to coherent now. Fractured C7, T1 and T4 vertebrae and a couple of broken ribs. Will probably take another month or so off the bike but hoping to get back to work (reduced hours) some time this week.

Well, I've passed the halfway point on my total, but I am allowing for some time off the bike later in the year on holiday.

Man that sucks pretty hard. I fractured my pelvis about 11 weeks ago. That hurt a lot!!! Not in the same league as your injury. Like me, you will be back into it ..... hopefully sooner rather than later :shock:

Certainly been harder to maintain the Km as these winter months have kicked in, dont mind so much the cold but the last month has been pretty wet down here i Melbourne. Still managed to stay on track for 6k this year.

That makes halfway for me! Couple weeks early is a nice buffer too

Just through 8000km now finally. About 60,000m vertical, it's pretty flat around here.

I'll claw back some elevation when I'm over in France soon.
