inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 24 January 2021, broken.
On his bike out in warm sunny weather,
He crashed our while at speed, hell for leather,
He crashed into a boulder,
Thought “I’ve broken my shoulder”,
As he felt the two halves grind together.
The two most common cycling injuries are broken wrists and collar bones. When you’re about to crash, you either stay holding on to the handlebar, in which case the impace breaks your collar bone, or you put your hand out to save yourself, inb which case the impact breaks your wrist. It hurts.
