Back on the road

Jan 06, 2012

It’s been 4 weeks since I skidded down the road on my shoulder and head. My head was ok, so they said, but as you all know my collarbone took the force of the road.

Today ( Friday 6th ) I got a few great words from Doctor David Potter at Claremont Sports Medicine Hospital.

” you’ve passed, you’re discharged ”

After 3 weeks of steady recovery, I am now allowed out on the road again.

I had a bit of a blast around the streets tonight on my bike, but that was really just to set up my new Garmin 500.

It felt bloody good though.

Tomorrow is the big day, training with brother Russ and a few of the lads. I can only imagine I’ll be smiling a lot, and generally enjoying being a bike rider outdoors again.

Then Sunday I’m heading to Lanzarote for 10 days and the teams official training camp.

Thanks for all the support in the last 4 weeks.

Check out this little Blog and video.

Wattbike has kept my legs moving over the last 2 weeks.
