I had the same thing happen with one of mine years ago. Family ride just taking it easy. The eldest decides to try and sprint with me. Three pedal strokes in her foot slips off the pedal, gets stuck in the wheel, she goes down and breaks her writing arm just before exams.Should’ve foreseen this coming. Both kids being really getting into riding being encouraged by us parents because there are great trails right out the back gate, and it’s a top thing to do with lockdown all but signed off in Tassie.
Anyway 8 year old daughter calls for a ride after dinner, off both kids go with dad. Have a good 20 minute spin but daughter wants to check out one last trail she hasn’t seen. On a completely innocuous flat bit of fire trail at barely faster than walking pace off she comes, and it’s a trip to the ED (awesome time to be mixing with the germs) for an x-ray and a half cast on a fractured arm. And that’s the writing hand with home schooling kicking off in earnest tomorrow. Fun times ahead.
I feel for you all.
