It was going to be a routine ride. A road beckoned that turned into a trail, that joined another trail that went to the top of Monduli Mountain. No small feat as the top of the peaks is thick with bamboo

Despite a dislocated finger i could grip enough and figured i would be recovered enough in 3 weeks. So I went out on the next weekend. Saturday I rode with the hotshots who were going a long around monduli mtn. I did Lengijave plains and back. i just took it easy in rough sections.
Next day i Joined two seniors and a bunch of novice teenagers. great riding on the Mkulat hills. Mostly bald steep hills. A few have forests where they catch the mist in the trees and then buckets.
In a fast down hill i was almost the last person, taking it easy. I slowed to ask why someone stopped and a kid came behind and locked his front brake and endoed over and smashed into my back. I went sprawling, breaking a spoke and the screen on my phone. I seemed shaken but okay.
A week later my ribs hurt more and more, and after treating pneumonia, then they also found two broken ribs.
So the 10 to 4 was scratched and i laid off weekend biking but continue commuting.
