The chances are, if you ride mountain bikes you will find yourself unable to ride every now and then due to sickness or injury.
Once upon a time, I would have enjoyed sitting in front of the TV watching films day in day out but since I found mountain biking, two years ago, I long to be outside. When I’m sick or injured, it’s hard to get my weekly fix!
Maggie Bird was diagnosed with Cancer last October just after the 2016 Red Bull Fox Hunt. After a number of operations, she’s now on the road to a full recovery.
I’m currently recovering from surgery on my abdomen and although our situations are very different, we both share one very big thing in common… we both love to ride our bikes! But, because of recovery we’ve had to stay off the bikes for long periods of time.
As mountain bikers and general lovers of the great outdoors, what can we do in this situation to keep our minds active? As it turns out, the biking community is a friendly bunch and the support we have received from them has been overwhelming!
