Are you sure about that? I'm the one that had to get stitches!

In answer to you earlier question...I was going down a very steep, rocky, rutted hill with a left hand turn...I got going too fast and didn't want to hit the brakes (afraid of skidding) and didn't want to hit another rider in from of me..I tried to go left and went down instead and the foot peg became too familiar with my left leg. It was a dumb thing to do, lesson learned. I can honestly say I had the best time !!

Sounds like another story....

Oh, by the way, another thing I learned from this accident: Hydrogen Peroxide is suppose to take out blood on clothing. And, it is the major ingredient in Oxiclean. You don't have to thank me

It does a pretty good job of boiling dirt, and germs out of wounds, as well.



Or, maybe that is why you had it out in the first place?

Yup. Sure. My first ride a few years ago.......up some dry creekbed with what they call "babyheads"------> dislocated my thumb, rode all the way back from near the Dalles to the Hood River ER. It can be done......but better when nothing happens :)
Peterman however says if you don't get hurt you didn't do it right

Yes, yes it was! What a positive, upbeat group of gals we had. Even with a few mishaps, no one complained. Every single person went home smiling

So amazing. So happy to have been with you all to share this experience! Can't wait to see all the photos and swap stories! <3

Also, I was thinking about that corn ALL THE WAY HOME. Trying to figure mine out. Hmmmm. Can't wait for next year's group photo! I'll post some pics after I handle the family stuff. Thank you for all the support!


Glad to see your leg is stitched up, Shirley!



Thanks for setting it all up, Shelly!





PNW LR 2014= BEND.

You were a lifesaver!
Shirley, I am so happy that your enthusiasm did not dwindle with your little mishap. Also happy that it was just some stitches and not worse.

I have developed my own theory about where exactly those limits are - and that not even the sky is the limit.
By nature I am very independent, very self sufficient, I feel that considering what all we do in the rest of our life (and professionally) makes it entirely possibly to fix a flat, replace a chain, change a tire. All takes just a handfull of tools...... When my son was about 16 and said significant other disappeared from my life I bicycled a lot. Along with pondering what I plan to do when my son turns 18 and feeling that bicycling is "just not fast enough" ... "not even downhill!" stepping over to a motorcycle was a given. I also thought that in order to ride where I want to go once he IS grown, I best start now. That was 2009.

Having been born in Germany may be a bit responsible for a certain defiant streak as well although having lived here for nearly 20 years....well, that streak is still alive .


I absolutely love Katie's post about her fixing her flat! Seems although it may not be for everyone, a group of us should be able to bring the skills we need to the table to pull it off! Right? That said I don't mind if others want comfort and support, I just felt earlier in the thread that no wife would ever post on her husbands ride thread that they will sneak into the camp, leave fresh undies and dinner - and do the same in the next camp over. Hmmm.....do I want to ruffle anyone's feathers today? No, I really don't.

I look forward to meeting you all next year!
When it comes to learning from the best, Sherri "ladybug" pretty much blazed a trail, Katie (live2ridektm) also.
Great ladies for sure!
Let the "un-veiling" of insults begin! No need to check them at the door any longer, huh Barb?? For someone who did not attend this event and contributed absolutely nothing, you sure have a lot to say about it. I am so thankful for happy, helpful hubbys like Jeff, Mat, Craig, Kent and Sprague. While many of the gals in attendance are "independent and self-sufficient" as you like to boast, many are not. I had many "thank yous" for providing these services that are so offensive to you. I even had one tell me that she would not have attended if they were not available. So...continue to take your bitter little pill, but please quit posting it here.
