cycling 20:00  5.0 mi (4:00 / mi)
Mt bike to Stanclift Cove to meet Rhonda, who was swimming. Almost there when it came to an abrupt end. Preparing for a left turn on the steep downhill, looked back to see a truck coming. Because of very limited neck mobility, I turn my body pretty far to see back. When I straightened out and started to brake the front wheel started to whip back and forth and I couldn't get it under control in the nanosecond or so before plummeting to the pavement.
My wrist was obviously broken, but otherwise very lucky. Very minor raspberries on r shoulder and r ankle, no other discernible damage. Got up with a bit of assistance from the truck guy who had stopped, coasted down the access road to find Rhonda and which a ride to the ER at Charlotte Hungerford in Torrington, where they decided I was a fast track patient. Location, location, location. I would have been a much lower priority at St Francis or Hartford Hospital, where gunshot wounds and stabbings are regular competition for less dramatic injuries like mine.
