i took up cycling properly in 1989 after a road traffic accident in '83 (yes i know i dont look that old... ;-) where my right leg was badly damaged, broken leg, knee joint shattered, snapped tendons and severed main artery... yes there was lots of blood, so a 6 hour op, 5 weeks in hospital and just over 2 years of physio i was on the mend, only to get septicaemia, but i'm here to tell the tale, so being out there, on the bike away from it all is heaven, it also helps keep the muscles strong around my dodgy knee, like i said earlier, i took up cycling properly in '89 and dont let my injury hold me back, i also help make the numbers up at local TT's and road race's... i may not be the fastest around but i dont think i do too bad considering.
