My wife and I have started biking to get exercise and spend quality time together. We have enjoyed it.
Sadly, though, last Saturday morning we had a mishap. We were coasting down a gentle grade in our subdivision when she turned in front of me to swerve to go to a garage sale. I hit her, and we both went flying ... about 15-18 mph. She suffered a subdural hematoma and spent the entire weekend in the Grady Memorial Hospital trauma unit under the care of a neurosurgeon. WE WERE NOT WEARING HELMETS. Big mistake. The message is ... don't ride without one.
Anyway, she is the office manager at our church, and I am the Headmaster of our Christian school.
I really enjoy working on bikes ... I've purchased bikes for all my grandkids at garage sales. My goal is to have the entire clan out riding together some Saturday morning .... helmeted, of course.
Once again, please wear a helmet so you don't have to experience a weekend like we did.
God bless ...
