Shaun Misses Bottle Finds Floor
Posted by: Adam Fuson @ 2007.05.20.1544

Wednesday evening the boys of UC Cycling met at TUC at roughly 6 pm and headed east to Ault Park. This has become fairly standard and the size and consistency of the group has been admirable. Two goals were set forth for the evening: 1 - a few hill repeats, 2 - practice handling skills. After ascending Heekin on the south side of Ault Park twice we headed toward a church parking lot in Fairfax, where we occasionally do some cornering practice. After picking water bottles and wrenches off the pavement, we setup a short, curvy course and played follow-the-leader until most of us were dizzy. We then brainstormed for awhile before deciding to practice water bottle hand-ups.

After we had set a course for the hand-ups and gotten all the bottles ready and the riders going around the course, Shaun Thobe was the first to receive a bottle. Unfortunately, he missed the bottle, which went flying into the grass, and somehow he fell directly to the pavement. Shaun's bike slid a little to the left and he ended up on the floor nearly in Indian style with a few patches of skin missing from his left hand, elbow and hip. We walked him into the church and cleaned him up in the bathroom. Shaun washed his hands, while I called The Bull, who was kind enough to drive us to my house to properly dress Shaun's wounds.

The other riders returned to campus, while The Bull drove Shaun and I to my house. There Shaun showered and scrubbed his wounds. Afterwards we cleaned them and applied some non-stick pads, which we held in place with burn-netting - the most amazing road-rash treatment device in my first-aid kit. Finally, Shaun ate an ice-cream sandwich while I took photos of his injuries, and then I returned him and his bicycle to campus.

  Thanks to The Bull for driving us home. Things were much more bearable with the help.

Do you know if you own a house or not yet?

  Fuse has been quoted in Bicycling Mag about Hyde Park ride. Don't know details like when it was published.

  Bull- Obscene Glory

Shaun- at least you had the Fuse to make it all better

Fuse- Where the hell are you? I need to railroad your spare time into internet webpage.
