"Maybe the driver jammed on the brakes and then reversed quickly, not giving the cyclist enough time to react. I guess it will all come out eventually. Trucks should be banned from turning there if it is tight."

"I'm not surprised that an experienced cyclist got caught out by that, we don't expect a dog truck that is part way around a corner to reverse.  It does make me wonder why the driver didn't see the cyclist in the reversing camera,…"

Eight Long Weeks

Posted on July 21, 2011 at 11:17pm 5 Comments

Eight weeks ago I woke up, jumped out of bed, and almost collapsed on the floor. Overnight my right knee had swollen. It could handle a little weight but not much. A trip to a Physio, the first of many, identify the problem as a slight tear of the meniscus.  Apparently this is a common cycling injury. But more worryingly, my knee mechanics were all out of alignment. Slowly we started retraining and strengthening both of my knees.…
