May 2019 update, not a lot to say this month. After touring for a couple of weeks, I’ve bored you enough with my daily posts!
I had my pre-op at the beginning of the month, so we’re all ready to go back into the hospital! Although I don’t think it will be for a month or two. That’s assuming my hip will hold up, as its pretty loose now! If I catch a bump wrong or forget and just go marching off, I can feel it move around, and it causes me a sharp pain! But hopefully, it’ll last for a while longer.
A Short Trip Away & Accident
I decided to go back to the New Forest for the night at the beginning of the month, to try out a new tent, but I’ll talk about that another time.
On the ride down, I managed to crash into some brambles! Maybe I was going a bit too fast, or more than likely as I think, I just wasn’t paying attention!
There’s one part of the route that goes down a gravel track, and it was there that I had my incident! I knew the gravel was a bit deep and very awkward on a fully loaded bike. But as I said I wasn’t paying attention! When I hit the gravel, I immediately felt the front wheel start to go! Worried about putting my leg down so suddenly! I decided to turn the wheel and headed for a bramble bush instead!
No damage, just a few cuts and grazes! I was more worried about my pride! There was a runner close behind me, so I quickly pulled myself out from the brambles and rode off!
I’m hoping to go away again in the coming month, although I doubt I’ll be going too far away, I am a little concerned that my hip will pop out! Which was one of the reasons for sticking close to the coast on my recent trip to France. I thought that if anything were to happen, I could probably manage to get home, or somebody could come and get me!
All the videos from my trip to Paris in March are now available to watch on YouTube.
