- Recovering confidence after a fall 5 answers
It's been 3 months since my bike accident, I've had at least 10 critical accidents. Sometimes I don't even know how I am alive. Recently, I had a bike crash when going down the hill which broke of 2 of my 2 front adult tooth. When I fell, my face scraped against the rough terrain, i was unconscious after accident, I had to undergo major surgery on the bottom half my face, My lips had a hole straight through it (enough for a thick pen to be put).
My face has recovered but every time I walk down the hill (everyday), I think of everything that happened that day. The worst thing is the amount of blood from my face on the floor hitting my memory again and again . It shakes me out.
My parents are telling me not to ride again ( I'm 19) but whats the fun in that. I'm trying to build the confidence but its sooo hard. Also bike became "un- ridable"
Any tips? What bike next? had mountain bikes before, thinking of road bike but doesnt seem like a great idea.
