So. 81 days ago I stacked it on my bike. Not a cool crash where I came off my road bike at 50 km/h on Mounts Bay Road, but on my regular bike heading to the bus stop “park your bike and ride”. So regular commuting, no gloves, and (because of jeans instead of lycra) no road rash! Hoorah!
Except I still have an indentation in my quad, and a slight discolouration where the bruise was. 81 days later.
I think the bruise must have gone down to the bone.
