Bummed

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008

I am pretty bummed that I can’t ride right now. It has been beautiful outside, and relatively cool for this time of year. I just know that my luck is such that by the time my finger heals, it’s going to be really hot outside. I also broke my camera in the wreck — the battery door is broken. It is still holding up for now, but I know it’s only a matter of time before it breaks off completely. My accidental-damage-coverage warranty ran out back in April, so I better start shopping for a new camera soon. Maybe I can make a rubber band or piece of tape work for a while.

I did try a test ride on Sunday of about 4 miles and while I was able to ride, I felt a lot of pain in my finger every time I hit a bump. I should probably wait at least a few more days before I try riding again.

The good news is, my finger feels a little bit better every day. If it continues to heal at this rate I’ll be back in the saddle before long.

    they do heal fast, i broke mine about 10 years ago playing football and i needed surgery. i remember the one thing that drove me insane was the feeling of the pins vibrating in my bone while driving (if i held the wheel with that hand)

    That sort of happened to me a few summers ago. I hit it hard after school was out and managed, through mixing wedgie and ‘bent bikes, to mangle my achilles for 2 months. As to the camera, that’s a bigger bummer, although it does give you an excuse to upgrade. Rest easy and be smart and patient.

    That is a bummer. A bummer that it happened on vacation. My vacation, a few weeks ago, was partially ruined by a nasty cold. At least that healed quickly and it wasn’t caused by a car hitting me.

    Sending some positive, healing energy your way!! 🙂

    Silver lining: at least you didn’t take the Nikon for a ride, right? Heal fast, ride faster.

    I just now read about your injury. Sounds more of an inconvenience than anything else. Don’t fester on the hit and run thing. That’s done with. Consider it a biking injury, heal up and ride again.

    But if you ever do see that sonofabitch….. well, you know what needs to be done.

    Take care.
