I broke my hand.

needless to say this will put me off my bike for atleast a couple of weeks..maybe longer. Riding is like therapy to me..so I may also go to jail for shanking someone.  ;) Ok, maybe not..but still.

This sucks.
When you ride so far out that you hear no traffic, no people...nothing..

Outch...  Sorry to hear that.  Which bone of your hand/arm/wrist is it?  Take care of it and do your therapy afterwards so you can gain your strenght back soon.

I tripped, and fell, I tried to catch myself, and didn't get my hand open fast enough and it rolled under pinky side first...I haven't went to the Doctors yet..I'm going to the doctor tomorrow, I wanted to see if maybe I jammed it, but I'm fairly sure..it's broken..it's very bruised on my palm, and the top of my hand is red, the pain hasn't subsided in 24 hours and the swelling hasn't gone down, I'm not normally a sweller, and I can hardly move my pinky..so I'll know more tomorrow...

thanks guys for the well wishes..I'm a tank, and will certainly push myself past this..out of shear stubbornness...lol  :D

A broken wrist cost me almost two months off the bike and added almost 10 lbs to my arse. I feel for you, time off the bike is tough. It really is an addictive sport that is a great release from the day-to-day b.s. Better than a therapist, yet over the last sixteen years, cycling has probably cost me more than a shrink!

first, I am typing with my left hand only, so for the next six weeks expect anything I type to be short and to the point. :D I have what the doctor calls a "boxers fracture" the bone on the right side of my hand broke right behind the knuckle, folding it downward, which is why, I lost upward movement of my pinky..I am in a temporary splint, until I go see an orthopedic specialist..I should recover, but I may always have a lump where the bone will heal slightly crooked..anywho, that is the official medical word as to what I did....man I'm an idiot...but such is life....Evel Kneival would be calling me a wuss right now..lol...I'm gonna get back on my bike soon enough, but he's (my bike) still not speaking to me...:p

You don't need the pinky to shift.  Tell em to put a short cast and when you get off the short cast into the soft one you should be okay to ride.  I tried.  It delay my full recovery longer but I couldn't wait much longer.  Be careful and healing vibes going your way now.
