    Back on My Bike Despite Broken Arm (Video)

    Yes, my surgeon wants me to wait at least another month before I ride on the road. It was such a beautiful day, though, that I had to pedal my bike. It was a short ride - I didn't even make it around the block.

    Love it! When I broke my little toe, my Dr. told me I would not be able to jog for 6-8 weeks (before I ever got into biking). I looked at him and said "challenge accepted"

    I was back on the track a week later. Who needs a little toe anyway?

    Very tricky dude!!
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    Must be photoshopped--Where are you going to get a sky that Blue in December?

    More effort needed-You aren't even sweating Even with the "Fake" Sun.

    Give it 2 weeks before the trainer gets ditched.

    Certainly a well done video, icyclist. Having read the messages before playing the video, I knew what to expect. But was still impressed enough I watched it twice.

    Thanks! Credit goes to my lovely daughter, who served as videographer, using the camera on my cell phone.

    Give me five weeks, when I'm theoretically going to be told my bones have healed, and just before the first and only rain of the year will fall on my fair city.

    Icyclist: you are doing the right thing--although it is not the time to fall (as if there is a good time!)

    My surgeon who fixed my hip told me the sooner you get back on the bike the sooner you will heal after insertion of a Zickel Nail:

    http://www.jaaos.org/content/8/1/56/...c-18.large.jpg

    You need blood circulation to promote healing, so a week after the surgery was on a wind trainer and still had the staples!
    (I did wait a month to ride on the road!)

    Although sweating in a cast is no fun, because afterward you need a coat hanger to relieve the itch under the cast!

    Don't listen to your doc, listen to your body.


    My body always says--The hell with the injury, get out there and ride!

    And as for your not making it around the block, I believe I have located the problem. Some sort of tubular mechanical excressence has attached itself to your back wheel.

    Good luck with your recovery, and don't do anything (too) foolish.

    Next, I see in the future, his stationary bike trainer in the bed of a pickup truck, going down the freeway while he pedals away! Nothing could go wrong with that, right?
