It all looks so nice and innocent, but as many other cyclist and musicians I had the unpleasant experience of eating asphalt.

Cycling is a great sport and has less injuries compared to many other sports. But when it hits you be prepared.

Some things you can do before you break your bones.

Train left hand typing if you are right handed. Dvorak one hand international Keyboard layount is a must for broken arms.

Have sufficient amount of paracetemol and or a first aid kit at home, it helps cutting down on healing time.

Make sure you have a good health insurance.

Download rapidshare links ( 1 click downloading)

Continue training your Dvorak left hand keyboard layout

Listen to all the downloaded music, you never listen to before

Finally organise your music collection

Depending on your injuries, repair your bicycle

Indeed. I recently had a nasty cycling accident - a car hit me from the side at a junction. Sent me flying accross a main road. Had to spend the night in hospital, and am still suffering side effects from that dreaded night at the start of May. My beloved Koga Miyata Gran Racer is now damaged beyond repair.

WoW this is getting spooky ;)

it seems that we all have a lot more in common then our taste of music and cycling. We all seem to have our bike accidents too. :angry:

Interesting to find out if we start listening to Kraftwerk and then start to bike or visa versa, or is it just that combination of genes who make us cycle and listen to Electronic Music ?

Women Kraftwerk fans are rare, is this the mechanical part they are missing ? They do cycle, but most of the time with their husbands :D

I've been cycling since I was a kid. Probably not too long before I discovered Kraftwerk though...

In Amsterdam I would fear to get bikechecked on such a beauty

I cycle as well, not so often nowadays, work keeps me exceptionally fit, but I am known to bike down to my local shopping centre when the weather is good to buy bread to feed the ducks at the local pond.

That's all well and good until the geese get a whiff of things and invade en masse, apart from the two old toulouse geese that are so old and friendly you can actually pat.

Amazing how cheaply you can buy a bike these days. I'll bet it weighs a fraction of a bike made 20 years ago too, for a fraction of the price.
