On November 20 2011 my life took a dramatic turn. What had been a very pleasant and lovely ride on the Mornington Perninsula of Melbourne, Australia ended dramatically as a van turned across my path as I had just come down Oliver’s Hill. I hit the passenger door at 55km/hr and was launched head first into the passenger door window. My injuries included concussion, three chipped vertebrae, broken right hand, broken left wrist, shoulderblade and collarbone. I also had a minor heart episode and small brain bleed.
In short I am lucky to be alive. All those injuries improved but the injury yet to be mentioned, the left brachial plexus will be with me forever. I have partially avulsed three of my nerves. It is now April 2013 and I intend reviewing my journey for those interested and will endeavour to keep it up-to-date. I hope it helps people who find themselves in a similar position
