Most accidents happen at home
Most accidents do happen at home, I fell off my bike
Let me start from the beginning, It was raining very hard and didn’t look like it was going to stop so I set my touring bike up on my stationary trainer, set a table in front with the DVD player and a big fan.
I put a DVD about the world’s best commercials in the player, turned the fan on medium and cleat-ed in for today’s ride and away we go.
The dogs were playing around me and I was turning the cranks with the wind blowing in my face making me feel like I was just flying above the road.
The Porsche commercial came on, the one where the 911 is running a road course at about 180 mph and having had Porsches I was into this. The wind felt so good in my face and I was grooving!
The dogs saw the car racing on the road and decided to chase the car for what ever reason BUT the picture was sitting still and the dogs ran pass the DVD and hit the fan, the wind direction changed making me think I was turning so I leaned into the turn and fell of the bike, hit my head on the coffee table and hanging up on the bike with my cleats locked in.
I pulled and turned until the cleats turned lose then me bike and table all ended up in a heap in the floor.
The dogs were not hurt and I should get out of the hospital as soon as they get fresh bandages on my head and get my leg and arm set in casts.
