Felix and I have been together for a year now. We have been through a lot ….
The first day I brought this beauty home I took him out for a test ride. I wasn’t used to having clip in shoes so I was riding slowly and getting used to taking them in and out and changing gears etc. When I started to get comfortable with the whole thing I decided to give it a good go and speed up as fast as I could. I reached to my top speed and Salty saw a duck on the other side of me. He came crashing straight into my front wheel, flipping the bike out from under me and I landed on my head. I skidded 10m across the pavement still clipped onto my bike. There was a lot of bleeding and road rash and stitches in the side of my head.
The worst part about the whole accident was that I lost my confidence on a bike and I have been slowly trying to regain it ever since.
If you have a bike sitting around collecting dust I highly recommend digging it out and going for a spin. Its great for a break from running and builds muscles you didn’t know you had (good for the tush!). Also a great activity to do with friends. Happy biking everyone!
