Busted up in Baja: Christmas greetings in a cast

Haven’t been in the posting spirit lately. All my fault.

I took a small group to Baja for a weekend ride. Some I’d ridden with, some I hadn’t. Everything was going great until it wasn’t.

The route included a lot of dirt, off-road, backcountry stuff. I had a minor get-off on Day 2, just 25 miles or so from Valle de la Trinidad and felt something pop. I put some ice on it then road 160 miles home.

Later that evening, the fine folks at urgent care let me know I’d broken my tibia right below the knee.

This comes at a bad time and I’ve really knackered up some plans...

I’m recuperating as I consider my options.

Ride safe!
