Weekending 07 Jan 07

Not much to write about this week apart from  the session on the turbo.
I had another incident at home, still suffering with a badly bruised shoulder I had another go on the turbo.
I’m all clipped in and sitting upright while warming up. Whilst I was upright it was a chance to set the Heart Rate Monitor. Then it happened, one of those incidents that is only going to happen to you once. The bike slipped out of the turbo trainer. I was helpless as the bike toppled over with me still clipped in. Fortunatley I crashed down on my good shoulder. (there was nothing fortunate about it at the time).

The fall jarred my other shoulder and I had to sit down and recover for a few minutes. Once I had calmed down I had a good look at the turbo. there is a slot in the quick release mounting that accomodates the lever on the quick release skewers.
This was at the bottom and had allowed the wheel to slip down and forward dumping me on the floor.

Once I realised what the problem was the skewer and the mounting were adjusted so it won’t happen again. Had a small go, about 50 calories worth.

Sunday: Impromtu ride from the Eureka so the list says. My first real chance to get back on the bike now the arm is feeling a bit better. I’ll let you know how I get on.
