When recently in hospital I enquired how long it would be before I could ride a bike again, the consultant said six weeks and only if I promise to wear a crash helmet when riding in future.
To be honest it is ironic really that when I was racing cars or even just taking part in track days I was safety mad, wearing only the best safety equipment.
However when riding bikes I have not been wearing a helmet, but am fanatical about lighting.
I have now corrected that and have invested in a high quality helmet, fitted with an red LED light at the back which fits well considering my large head size.
Of course it now has the ENABLE logo’s installed as well.
I am looking forward to trying it out soon, not sure if I can wait six weeks however, maybe a quick spin around the block soon, when Jayne is here to supervise of course.
