Just in time to top off the peak of my cycling season, I picked up a little more speed than I should have onto the big solid steel High Level Bridge here in Edmonton yesterday. I sideswiped some steel. There is no real barrier between the walking/cycling path and the bridge itself. Anyway, I hit it going about 30k and smashed my arm.
Cross your fingers because my doctor thinks the muscle might be torn. I'm on my way to the hospital to get the x-ray tonight.
I rolled around on the pavement for a bit. No pedestrians stopped or anything. I fellow Critical Mass rider finally stopped and checked on me. I finally pulled myself together and carried my sore lil' *** into a clinic.
I really can't afford to tear the muscle cause I have to move in a month. Funny how things happen that way.
Don't worry. Contrary to my girlfriends wishes, I'm not retiring for the season. There's a long winter of cycling ahead of me.
