Happy New Year to our dear readers!
Many have been wondering about the burning question of 2018…”did Eve and Roger achieve their goal of 5000 miles?”
The answer is YES, and here is a picture taken at that very moment on our neighborhood ride.
It was the day before Christmas and it was cold and sunny so we sucked it up, put on our tights and (new) jackets and churned out the needed miles. It’s a good thing we did because 2 days after Christmas disaster struck.
The very short (for me) version of the story is that we were on a walk and I tripped on an uneven seam in the sidewalk and fell on my right arm and face.
The damages were pretty extensive: fractured radial head (elbow); bruised bone and ligament damage in wrist; broken rib; face hit the concrete at the eyebrow area causing abrasions, swelling and a lovely black eye. Since I shared the damage from the sidewalk incident in Amsterdam in 2015, I will share the picture from the day after this incident as well.
It’s been just over 6 weeks since the mishap and I’m on the mend and back on the bike (with doctors’ permission) and we logged almost 30 miles (3 rides in the mild weather) this week! Happy Dance!
Coming soon, we go in search of some warm weather.
