Theobald's Road sucks
1.12.07 by Buffalo Bill

I broke my thumb. I hit something in the road, and washed out my front wheel. One second I was on the magic carpet, held off the ground by the wonder of gyroscopic motion and pneumatic tyres. The next I was lying in the road. I bent my thumb, broke my glasses and my hand looked like I had used to punch the road repeatedly.

Really quite painful. So I can only type with one hand and I can’t ride.

  1. gutted…here’s to a speedy recovery.

  3. Was that on the section they a re-surfacing? It’s horrible riding on there! Huge gulfs between manholes!

  4. Yeah, exactly. I think I hit one of those things. Either that, or an empty bottle of Buckfast.

  7. Shitty man, get well soon. Hit the physical therapy hard and you’ll be right as rain in month or less.

  12. that new surface on Theobalds is pretty smooth, good for skaters even. Or Segways.. Itss nice. I like. But what’s with the new traffic lights? Sweet and sour innit Bill? What’s next? ID cards?? Let’s have a ‘Reclaim the Steets’ on Theobalds! Reclaim the Duke!

  13. never mind your non-riding, bill. it wasn’t that great in the first place. And for the one-handed typing: it hopefully shortens down the articles you write.

    but besides all that, get well soon and stay positive. THUMB UP!

  14. Av Bill! Bloody hell. I bet that resulted in a flow of four letter words. Don’t kill the other poor souls on the bus & get well soon. t

  15. sorry to hear old fellah, but added bonus if your right hand thumb was busted cos now you can knock one out with your left and it will feel like some one else.
