cycling, blood and an Observation from The Bean - almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea

cycling, blood and an Observation from The Bean
cycled 25-and-a-bit miles yesterday in training for my 100km bike ride around London in June.

Legs. Ache.

Also sustained my first cycling-related injury in years.

The bike in question was stationary. And upside down. I was adjusting the front brake.

Kids, never ever attempt to stop a spinning bike wheel by putting your hand on the rotating disk brake.




ok, it was a small cut, but it fairly neatly sliced the tip of my finger open.

Those things are *sharp*.

I pointed this out to Edward Q. Bean, and said it was an Important Lesson, and that it was lucky it happened to me and not him.

He gave me a Look, as only EB can.

"Well, who would be stupid enough to do that?"

Well put, EB.

Kids are so full of compassion for parental injuries at that age aren't they? H decided that scientist was better than doctor because she wouldn't have to put up with whiny people messes. Probably just as well as her response to whiners is "suck it up, Buttercup".
