Just a few days to go to Snowy Ride, and despite my best efforts to stop myself from getting there on my bike, I'm determined to ride down!
Just before leaving Europe (Paris) a week and a bit ago, I fell down some stairs and sprained my right ankle... after an interesting flight home (wheelchairs on and off flights!) and a few days rest, with some heavy strapping I was able to get back on the bike after about 4 days to start riding to work again. I"ve learned not to use the footbrake much anyway, so figured I should be OK.
So, last Thursday night I was about to leave work and walking (hobbling) down a flight of stairs inside our building to get to where I park the bike, I slipped on the second last step, twisted and sprained my left ankle, dropping a PC I was carrying in the process... this time I got an ambulance to the hospital and had both ankles x-rayed.. nothing broken either side thankfully, but the newly damaged left foot is swollen worse than the right one was.
I'll take another day off work to rest the foot, but I'm determined to ride down to Thredbo on Friday morning.. I figure I've got another 2 or 3 days for the swelling to go down before I try riding again, as I have to get the bike home from work so I can pack it for the 3 days away!
And now for the weather.....
forecast on weather.com for Thredbo says:
Friday scattered showers 15 C
Saturday showers 9 C
Sunday mostly cloudy 14 C
see you there, by hook or by crook... for a Saturday afternoon drink!
