Andy White and his Fyxo website are legendary in the Melbourne cycling scene (and indeed beyond). The frames Andy restores, the stories he tells, the Melburn-Roobaix ride he organises every year – there’s a lot to like. Ten years ago Andy was involved in a crash that very nearly put an end to his cycling (and more). If you’re a fan of the Fyxo brand, or you just want to read a well-told story about the lessons learned through an unfortunate accident, check out Andy’s excellent post.
Here’s an excerpt:
“I remember sitting in emergency, staring at my shoes in the only comfortable position I knew at this point and hearing the familiar click of heels on tiles. Melodie had left work to see me and I could tell she was nearly as shaken. Finally my name was called and I went to the window. I handed my X-Ray across the counter and the nurse pulled them out and dropped them almost instantly.
‘Don’t fucking move,’ she said.
‘Is this serious?’ I replied.
‘Deadly fucking serious.’ she said and had now called staff to help secure me to a board with my head strapped to it. I remember hearing her say to a colleague ‘YES – he fucking walked in here like that!’ as my vision was now fixed at the ceiling.
