Having to do things differently

While I’m on a bike riding theme I wanted to let you know that I took my wife and daughter for a ride recently. It was a Sunday morning and great weather so we loaded up the bikes and went to the Warburton Trail.
Ok so you are all thinking…

  • A handcycle costs much more than a 2 wheeled bike, my bike cost $10,000
  • It’s harder to load a handcycle onto a car/trailer (Sometimes need help)
  • If my daughter or wife falls off their bike I am limited to how much I can help them as I can’t get off my bike
  • If I get a flat tyre I have to try to fix it while sitting on my bike
  • There are some places that my bike cannot get to (see story above)
  • It’s just not the same as a “Normal” bike

Now don’t get me wrong here, we had a great ride and my daughter rode 14km, I was so proud of her. But the point I’m making here is that as much as I can do things in different ways, it’s not the same as I should be able to do them if I was not in a wheelchair.

Just think for a second about some of the ways that an injury would change your life!

Don’t hurt yourself… It’s just not worth it.
