I’m definitely getting a pair these badasses this winter… that is, when and if my left arm recovers. It no longer hurts like hell every time I move, but I it’s still pretty much unusable; I basically can’t lift my hand above the head level without cringing in pain and reminding myself that was a really stupid idea. I could probably ride a bike if I kept I peaceful pace but I shudder to think what would happen if I had to make a sharp turn or I actually had another accident.

I had no idea you can actually hurt yourself that bad just by falling off a bicycle.
