A bit of good news. B had a Bikeability assessment a while ago and was given the all clear so last week we went out on the bike to the pub. Apart from the assessment it was the first time B has been on the bike since her accident. It was so strange to me that she looked just as she always did on a bike, same pedalling action, same form and position. At one point I said to B "its just as well you've been off the bike a year, it means I can keep up." B looked at me and said "I ain't even trying yet!"
So now we are planning our first long ride with lunch and cake stops.
I know B is in rehab, I know B is struggling with her levels of insight, I know she remains subject to a Deprivation of Liberty order, I know many things have changed, but its great that we can just do the thing we always did...get together, get on a bike and ride. And that has made me very happy!
