Hi all, writing this from the trauma unit at my work after having a pretty serious off last Saturday (1/ on the Wollombi road. Was just out for a relaxed ride, casing the road because I was planning to do it with a (red P) friend on Sunday so not really pushing hard at all. Remember coming up to a left-hander, then the next thing I was at work (a hospital) with my boss standing over me, thinking "that corner clearly didn't go as planned." Apparently I went wide and tried to climb through the windscreen of a Hyundai, although i have no memory of it. Ive also heard informally that I looked like I was avoiding something, which is kinda comforting as I'd like to think that running wide isn't something I'd do without reason, especially seeing as I wasn't speeding, pushing it, etc. So apart from the concussion, my injuries are a badly smashed right femur (now held together by a 400 mm nail), 4 pelvic fractures, smashed left forearm (2 plates) and multiple left wrist fractures (wired together). Escaped without major chest, abdominal or head & neck injuries and absolutely considering myself lucky to be here. Spent the last week in a haze of painkillers being looked after by my colleagues. Probably in hospital for another 2-4 weeks, off work for 4-6 months -- all being well of course! Unfortunately the bike looks pretty totalled. I will ride again, but not a day before I'm physically strong enough to do it -- probably after I've done some intensive rehab and back at work. Rant over... just needed to get it all off my chest. If anyone passed along the Wollombi Rd on Saturday afternoon and has any insight into what may have happened, I'd be pretty keen to hear!
