FIXED GEAR PORTLAND – FIRST DAY OF SUMMER
Starting things off with a bang. It’s finally feeling like Summer here in the Pacific North West and people in Portland are beginning to come out of hibernation. I met up with a bunch of the dudes at the Chrome Industries PDX HUB and went for a chill ride on the East side of town. After riding to Sellwood and back we came across and spent some time riding this fun little kicker. Dig through the post and check out photos of everyone catching some righteous hangtime.
Fast Forward to later that night. I’m riding home, throw a skid, and tabletop it straight to my left side. I bounced back up, hopped on my bike and immediately knew something was wrong. I made it the rest of the way home, went to the doctor the next day and discovered I broke my clavicle. After a week and a half of doing nothing I made my way to the operating table where they set me up with a sweet new metal plate with a few screws (see photo at the bottom of this post). It’s been almost two weeks since surgery and nearly a month since the initial accident, but things are finally starting to look up. I hope to be back on my bike in the next couple weeks and look forward to rolling with the pack again. Until then enjoy these and many posts to come while I get back up to speed.
