    thankfully, it was my left one (im RH)

    i was biking along a major road on the bikepath next to it, and a guy in a car turned left. he saw me and stopped, and i saw him and stopped, but my momentum kept me going and i flipped over the handlebars.

    they're not 100% sure, they took some xrays which proved inconclusive, so im in a temp. cast for a week, when they'll take it off and re-xray

    all i know id 2 things

    #1 = OW

    #2 = no meaningful photography for 1-6 weeks

    i just started shooting for a paper too :(

    Sounds like a good break then a bad break!

    Hope it's just a bruise mate!

    OH NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Soooo sorry to hear of this Stu. What a 'tough break' (no pun intended) to hurt your wrist right when you're trying to shoot for the paper. Here's hoping the next set of xrays shows it's not actually broken.

    I know what that's like. Too many cars just don't pay attention to cyclers. The most satisfying cut off I've ever run into drove a Maseratti. I wonder how much a scratched panel on those is worth.

    Get well soon.

    Hopefully it's not to bad. When I did my ankle a couple of months back, it was in a backslab for a week after which I was walking round on it again - the xrays on that weren't too conclusive either. Hopefully once the initial swelling has gone down it won't be as bad as first feared either. Don't forget, plenty of ice, constriction and elevation works wonders, as does Voltaren and Brufen.

    Aww :( seems to be a good time for accidents these days :(

    hope you get well soon! something similar happened to me about 15 years ago ... it was not broken, but still extremely painful and took a while to heal.

    hope you get better soon!
