Yes Marc you are correct. That image I sent you in the form of a birthday card is in fact, a close up of a hematoma I suffered recently (and yes I am testing you to see if you’re reading my blog). Since I trust that you are religiously reading my posts, you will remember that I recently mentioned needing to replace my bike helmet. With that I should admit that I was reminded once again not to attempt cornering at high speed, on a frozen roadway while attempting to obtain a date. This maneuver did not work for me in the past (hence a broken collar bone in ’98) and it did not work for me last week. I hope that you appreciated your very colorful birthday card as no one but you can fully understand what a gifted cyclist/crasher I truly am.
Quick reminder: The more you move, the more you fall. When you fall, and you will fall. Don’t try to stop your fall by putting out your arm or your hand. That’s how people break their arms and their wrists. When you’re going down, think tuck and roll. Tuck your arms and legs in and lay/roll down. No matter which direction you’re flying in, tuck and roll baby! Seriously. It works. You gotta trust me. I may be a shitty speller but I’m really good at falling.
