Mountain biking is an awesome sport, but it’s not something to approach casually. This note from a StickerGiant devotee shares a harrowing experience and an awesomely positive attitude …
This is my mountain bike helmet. I had a pretty severe crash with it, lost traction going very fast on a wide turn, flew about 15 feet and crashed on a rock wall. At first I thought it was just the usual pain… but life had something else for me in store that day. I spent a week at the hospital healing from the surgery to fix my broken arm and some ugly hematomas that wouldn’t let me move much.
I’m all good now, but that episode made me realize how really lucky I really am and how quickly you can get… very unlucky. To have a body that works, go out there, explore, go fast and have fun is really a blessing. So I put Sarah there. It says “Lucky”. I think it fits the bill. Plus she looks nice .
It’s good to have luck in spades, but it’s not often you pull six diamonds out of the deck. That’s why money spent on a quality helmet is never a gamble.
