This would be ridiculous if it weren't painful. Never gotten hurt on a bike before without actually falling off the dang thing. I was Just Riding Along through a little rock garden, got off line, and applied some body English to get through. Didn't even put my foot down, but pulled a muscle in the left side of my neck...so weird. Luckily Dirty Boo had a bag of Advil along, so I finished the ride, somewhat stiffly. Currently applying ice and beer...

Heal up Dan.

Had a little incident last weekend myself. Right afterwards, I faked myself out by pondering, "will it be an advil day or a beer day?". Of course, I knew the answer before the question was even fully formulated....

You on the other hand are going full tilt with both! Hope it works itself out quickly.

Cold beer has healing properties that the medical community has yet to tap into. :wink:

Hope the booze and advil kick in soon. If not, then I might have a story that will make you feel better. About a year ago I pulled a muscle in my neck YAWNING. Yes, I swear this is true. I couldn't turn my head to the right for the better part of a week. I'm sure the universe was punishing me for something, but I have yet to figure out what... So props to you for getting injured while doing something interesting. I was apparently too bored to be healthy.
