    Wow Mikie, glad to hear you're safe and ok. Feel better soon...a couple beers to wash down a percocet will make the pain go away!

    I think we need to rename this forum from Crash Confessions to "My Bike Rode Me Today." :thumbsup:

    Doc drew a picture, when I'm up for it, I will try and duplicate.
    Right now, I'm just trying to leave the Trauma Ward!

    Interesting that your foot got stuck in the pedals because as we all know, that rarely happens....except when it does. The #1 reason I switched to flats was so I can bail when necessary.

    Prior to his heart attack, my buddy Matt was thinking about trying flats after watching me ride Mt Wilson an do just fine. As a lifer in clipless, that amazed him. Anyway...now that he’s on blood thinners, that’s out because the learning curve with spiky pedals is potentially bloody. However, we were discussing the topic yesterday anyway and he said “I always seem to come out of my pedals just fine” and I of course said “until you don’t”. I’ll be telling him this story.

    As a frequent flyer in PT, do what you’re told and don’t push too hard on the rehab.

    Rest up, heal up and feel better soon @Mikie ! I'm so sorry that your date with the ground proved to be a bit abusive, but you are a warrior and will rise again!

    Geez @Mikie don't scare us like that. What a bummer. Sure glad you are going to be OK.
    Last night I made fun of your choice of shorts and I expected a quick reply. When that didn't happen I remembered that you were riding McGill last night. I remember thinking that I hoped you made it home ok.
    You will be in my prayers. Heal up quick so we can do that Rosamond ride and you owe me a Golden Eagle ride too:thumbsup:
    Oh, and while you are healing up you will have a chance to check out Sara's pro deal on hot yoga gear so you can replace those shorts - heck get an extra pair or two.

    I was actually surprised how many guys ride clipless here in imtbtrails-land. I do too but most of my out of state friends ride flats.

    I have tried a few times to switch over but my feet are so "all over the place" on flats that I have too many panic attacks during a riding attempt and therefore I can barely finish a small trial ride.

    I switched over last Fall after 25+ years on clipless. It takes the right shoes with grippy rubber and there’s a definite learning curve. I still try to “lift” every 5-6 rides which of course when not clipped in just means I come off the pedals and stall That being said, now that I’m conditioned, I’d never want to go back and my shins have been blood free for a while I can’t say the same for my calves but they get nailed when I stop and my cranks spin

    Hey @Voodoo Tom , just wanted to add my thanks for your quick thinking last night. The person who is hurt is usually not in a place where they can assess their situation and know what to do. My wife is an RN and years ago the neighbors called to see if she could come check on their mother who was having chest pains. She asked them why they didn't call 911 and they said Mom wouldn't let us. She gave them a lecture on not letting the patient call the shots. Your decision was probably even more effective than calling 911. You saved a step and got the right guys to help. We owe you one:thumbsup:

    The biggest complement to @Mikie is how this has derailed to a clipless vs. flats conversation.
