So much for getting in some good miles in prep for CIRREM. I would love to say that I was riding along about 30mph and out jumped a mountain lion. Then, I went on to kick his a$@ and before I snapped his neck he bit me but that would be a bit of a stretch.
Ok. Here's what happened. I took off from a resting point and after one or two pedal strokes my front tire washed out on a small patch of ice. Down went me in super (elderly style) slow motion. My hand planted on the gravel which wasn't the problem. My fat left leg hits my elbow and hyperextends my arm and pop goes my elbow. One of the bones that runs through my arm fractured right where it meets the elbow. So, three weeks with no pressure on the arm at all which means no riding. Then, it could be four more weeks without the cast and possibly still no riding. Another xray in three weeks so we'll see.
