Don't break your wrist!

Dear reader,
may I offer some good advice? Don't break your wrist.

A month without any blog posts is not due to the fact that I've been riding all the time, or to the awful winter weather. No, three-and-a-half weeks ago I broke my left wrist while---not cycling, but snowshoeing. Somewhat ironically, on just that day I had ordered my own pair of snowshoes, as I no longer wanted to rely on Glenn Swan's generosity in lending me a pair of his. To add loss to injury, I also managed to lose my bike computer while awkwardly trying to bike back home with my broken wrist.

While I'm on the way to recovery, biking will still have to wait for at least two more weeks. I tried getting some exercise today on the trainer, but my wrist still can't support my weight, and riding one-handedly gets old pretty quick. In order to get at least some exercise (and to get to places!) I've done a lot of walking, both with and without snowshoes. Once my cast will be removed (March 1), I'll hopefully be back on the bike, if not for longer rides then at least for running errands and buying groceries.

Be safe,
