All healed up and riding again
So, I've had my foot in a soft-cast for the past couple weeks, on account of breaking my ankle when I got a pantleg caught up in my cranks: BMX cranks hurt me stupid-bad
Anyway, last night around dinner time I'm like "to hell with this boot, I wanna RIDE!" So I took the damn thing off (it was one of those plastic and neoprene jobs
) and I put on my shoes and these sweet new spats
I got to prevent this from happening again.
Anyway, the test ride proved my ankle was fine. Riding actually feels less stressful on the break-site than walking in the boot. Fluid motion and all that fixed-zen BS, I guess.
Later on I was going to a party, and I was riding there wicked high in the rain, following some friends in a car. I was feeling that nice full-body-tingle buzz, and the cold rain was on me, and I was thoroughly enjoying being back on the bike. I burst out laughing while I was trackstanding behind them at light.
So, soooooooooooo good to be back on the bike. I've been dirt poor because I haven't worked in two weeks (I pedicab), but I'm gonna make up for that a couple weekends from now -- CoMO is hosting the true/false film fest, and I signed up to cab 28 hours that weekend. It's gonna be hella money.
So to recap: bicycles can hurt you and make you poor, and then make you dress funny, and then heal you and help you get your money back.
