I work overnight, and today I was sleeping to be abruptly woken from my screaming 8 month old son, and my crying wife. Apparently my little man figured out how to crawl to an object and learn how to pull himself up to a standing position today. All is well except when my wife was making herself lunch and he crawled to my bike and pulled it over on himself. Resulting in many protruding bumps on his head and several cuts (he was hit by the big gears and pedal) and a day visit in the ER/Hospital. My wife feels horrible about the situation, and I feel bad for the little fella too, but I never thought it was light enough to be pulled over like that. All after we "baby proofed" our house.
I don't know if there was damage to the bike and I frankly don't care, but our little fella is doing fine aside from some extra checking on him while he sleeps tonight to ensure there is no additional swelling.
I planned a 17 mile ride with my sister today which was obviously missed for more important reasons.
May this be a lesson, your light aluminum bike that hangs out in the front room (we live in a 2BR condo) can be pulled over by an inquisitive youngster. My wife has now (understandably so) mandated the bike be placed outside. So I have to figure out a way to make sure it can be placed on the porch without being affected by the harsh elements of CO.
What a day.
