Please reference the post below to read my pollyanna treatise on wounds, injuries, and the inherently soulful qualities of riding through pain.
When it comes to gaping puncture wounds I feel differently.
How do I feel about these sorts of wounds? Dizzy to mildly nauseated, especially while irrigating it with a syringe.
This occurred while sliding out on the freshly laid pine needles on that favorite trail of mine, the Twilight Zone. I’m not sure how the lawsuit works- do I sue Fat of the Land and then they sue the Forest Service or is it the other way around?
Maybe 70lbs of pressure is too much for those conditions. Who knows?
Aside from that, we had a grueling ride. The sun, the sand, the tectonic pace. I tell you what, if I wanted to hire someone to guide old, retired people who have neve ridden mountain bikes in the woods before I would hire my friend Mystery, the children’s birthday party pony. He would be perfect.
Good thing he doesn’t know about the internet.
