I mean, you spend your whole childhood ignoring your mum’s pleas to be careful, then your adult life ignoring your wife’s advice too.
My bad decision was knowing that I had an injured left hand that would affect my ability to brake, in a dangerous situation, I still chose to ride my bike at speed down steep alpine mountain roads.
Lesson learnt, good and proper?
You’d think so.
Since that day I’ve crashed at speed on a sitski over a cliff, rolled my arm bike, and almost drowned capsizing an uncapsizable rowing boat.
And relatively speaking, I’m barely out of my hospital bed.
