Yesterday, we decided to take a little ride through the 'hood without a real set plan/route. We came to an intersection and hadn't decided which way to go. Traffic came from our left and and she couldn't unclip from her SPD's fast enough. She fell right over and landed right on her wrist and forearm. Luckily, the break is a small, non-displaced fracture and should heal in 3-4 weeks. The trooper is upset that she won't be able to ride for that long. I'm proud of her.

And if you're just tipping over at a light, keep your hands and elbows in and lead with your leg. You might get scraped, but you probably won't break anything.

Good luck to her, and it's cool that she's still keen to get back out there.

bikeboy - love the avatar. Went to a Halloween party back in college as Bob Ross. Bought a wig, made a palette and carried around a 4" paint brush for painting "happy little trees". Most people had no idea who I was.

She's high on vicodin right now. I'm on my way home from the office to grab some lunch and play nursemaid.

She's had the bike and pedals about 2 months, but has only fallen over once. Unlike me when I started - I fell several times and still do on occasion. :blush2: I set her pedals at what I thought was the lowest tension. I'll check again. At least she's raring to get back up when she heals. We'll have to wait and see what the specialist says.
