After my last crash on my single, my husband is trying to steer me away from riding my single bike as much and concentrating on riding on the tandem. We just started riding a tandem and have only been on it 3 times before my crash. Granted, I'm not the best rider in the world but none of my 4 or 5 crashes in the last 5 years have been my fault, I don't think. One time my clipless pedal wouldn't release, another time I hit a lip to a driveway wrong and this last crash, I'm not sure what happen but I flipped over my handbars and cracked some ribs. This is the most serious I have ever been hurt, usually it's just been road rash. I love my husband dearly and know he is just looking out for my well being but I'm afraid if I don't get to ride my single like I want I will loose all my freedom. It might just be for the time being that since I am hurt so badly my husband thinks the next time it might even be even more serious a crash. I'm not getting any younger (52), but I still think I should be able to do what I want. My husband says there is a lot less chance of us going down on the tandem and he is probably right considering he has been riding the same length of time as me and has never gone down. Before the crash, on Saturdays we would ride together and then on Sunday he would go on a group ride and I would ride my single where I wanted. Should I give in to him and just give up on riding like I want?
