Speaking of downs

The guy who sold me the bike pictured below, John Crandall, has had a setback in his recovery from a bicycle-auto collision. Wife Kathy reports that he took a digger in the bathroom and dinged up his left knee. He’s had surgery to repair a torn patellar tendon and will be sporting a cast for two months.

That’s the bad news. The worse news is, that’s the same leg with the broken femur, so John’s rehab obviously will be extended. It must be maddening — he was making good progress, out of the wheelchair and using crutches occasionally, and spending a couple days at the shop each week.

Kathy says John’s not quite ready for visitors, if you’re so inclined. Meantime, think good thoughts in their direction.
