bicycle accident

if any of you guys cycle to work like me,i had a rude awakening this morning when my chain snapped and got stuck in the rear wheel while heading down the cycle lane and the bike somersaulted with me going with it.luckily another cyclist stopped and phoned an ambulance and after i got checked out at the side of the road i was ok to go home but gonna head to a+e now to get my arm looked at as its killing me and i can hardly move it.i was very lucky especially as i wasn't wearing a helmet,i always thought it would never happen to me so didnt wear one but this has taught me to wear one just incase.

so a word of warning to all stupid cyclists out there like me be safe or pay the consequences.

Re: bicycle accident

Definitely wear a helmet!!!

It's not the fact that you're not a good cyclist or anything, but cars will inevitably hit you, accidents happen and like the above, bicycles fail.

Hope you're all ok Phoenix and that it won't stop you gaming!

Re: bicycle accident

cheers guys

i got xrayed and the doctor said i had cracked my elbow,basically when i landed on my wrist the force shot up my arm and cracked something called a radial head my arm is now in a sling for a week and i have lots of co-codomol to keep me pain free.

i managed to play burnout paradise for an hour earlier but then my arm got sore so in small measures gaming will continue...thank goodness,2 weeks off on the sick with no gaming would be hell
