    inspirational story. keep pedaling Daphne.

  • Mark Duggan

    Completely relate to this story Daphne, I broke both legs, smashed my left knee, shattered my pelvis in seven places and broke three vertebrae along with some ribs in a racing accident 18 months ago. It has been a massive ordeal with surgery after surgery, complications, infections all adding to physical and physiological stress and trauma, my bike has been my saviour with God knows how many hours I have put in on the ergo. Nothing I do in life is pain free anymore but like you said “the one thing that never disappoints me is my bike” suffering from chronic pain is the new normal unfortunately but giving in to it is a pathway to misery, accepting it and doing as much as you can keeps your sanity intact. All the best Daphne stay strong.
    PS. After thinking I would never walk again properly and never ride my bike again and after eleven surgeries I completed a 16 week ergo program I got back to club racing two weeks ago, a massive physiological boost.
