Cack Handed


I now have one Greta Garbo cheekbone
Out on the bike yesterday ( by myself- how's THAT for turning over a new leaf?)
I over wobbled on a slow manoeuvre and had a bit of a mishap with a bit of undergrowth
Co-ordination has never been one of my strengths
Undeterred ....I will be out and about again this afternoon

  6. 'mishap with a bit of undergrowth'. Euphemism for falling into a shrub.

  14. Poor you, getting fit is a disaster. Get Winifred to kiss it better.

  15. What are you like?! Hope it's not too sore and you have no further altercations with the undergrowth today!

  16. Low speed is so dangerous, my last tumble on the bike was when I was coming to a stop in Chicago, heal fast.

  17. I had to choose between a bramble and a ditch full of nettles this morning. I ducked and headed straight through the bramble. Just a slight scratch to my left arm. Keep going John (Alberto kept going with a broken tibia yesterday in the Tour de France)! It's great exercise.

  18. That happened to me the last time I tried to get on a bike. Don't let that stop you, now you've actually overcome the barrier. But, watch out for the eggs in the basket.

  22. Just as well you were on your own. I can just imagine the look on Chris's face, the eyebrow would have been up to his hairline.

  23. You have to keep a sharp eye on the shrubs - they will jump in front of you every chance they get.

  24. Well, I have sympathy for you, whatever it was it was better than landing on the back of your head onto a rotting stoat corpse...don't ask!

    ReplyDelete
  25. John, all part of the learning process. Ask any kid!
    And the lycra will make all the difference in the world....give them a try, I dare you!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Poor you…keep on riding that bike!! It will all be alright when you get more used to it!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ouch. And as a fellow klutz I winced in rueful recogniton.

    ReplyDelete
  28. My word there is no stopping you now!

  29. That's the spirit!

    It's been ages since i've been on a bike. Before bike helmets were invented, i tumbled off my cousin's bike (front tyre came off when i applied the brakes), and that wasn't a pleasant day. I didn't move my bike to the new place, and have wondered if i should take it up again.
