Today I am grateful For one big thing. I RODE MY BIKE YESTERDAY.
It is six months today since my accident. I have improved every day. Yesterday David was racing down at Nundah in the Twilight Series and I thought it was an opportunity to go and watch him and the boys race, take my bike and go for a ride in a safe environment. I asked Adam Gill a good friend and owner of Bikestyle Tours to come and ride with me. We rode for about 1/2 hour. I was clipped in, I managed to change gears and I loved it!! It is a very big event for me that I can now add to the list of ticks in my recovery.
Please note for those readers who do not know where I was riding I had my first ride at Nundah cycle track. It is an off road flat track that is about 1.5km long. I was on the track with a few other riders for 1/2 hr. I did not put myself or any other riders in danger. Here is a photo of the track:
I don’t have a photo of me riding but I do have proof I had my helmet on – I have a photo with helmet hair!
