We LOVE You KELD! Get Well soon!

Hey all,

Ok so I saw Simon's Instagram this morning that the boys were going to do a 200Km day to Collingwood and I thought AWESOME!

I was surprised to get a message from an old friend Matt Wallis who is now a fire fighter with a picture of a busted up bike.  Pic Matt sent me from the fire truck(Above)

 

Turns out on their way up, the small group of guys had a run in with a car making a left out to go southbound as they were headed north.  Robin and Simon jammed on the brakes and so did Keld, but he wasn't so lucky as he hit the back of the car and got catapulted and landed on his knee.  Fire and Ambulance were there within 5 mins and Simon made a call to Sunnybrook to an Orthropedic surgeon friend of his to give him a heads up on Keld's situation.  Needless to say his bike is not functional(Keld's Bike at the Fire Hall  - below)

I wanted to post this to let everyone know as I am sure if you have met or ridden with Keld and his wife Petra they are some of the nicest people around!  This is such and unfortunate event.  So I wanted to support Keld in this time and help him in his recovery with the support of the club.  BCC is one big family!

Petra will get in touch me me and keep me abreast of his progress and I will let you all know.

Oh, and of course in the Keld's style, he's like "You guys better not turn back!"

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Dan.

So sorry to hear about your crash.  Relieved that it isn't more serious than it already is.  Best of luck through surgery and recovery.

terrible news... all the best for a quick and full recovery, keld, and i'll look forward to our next ride.

Get well soon Keld!  I'm sure you'll love your new bike shopping as a distraction while you recover :)

Keld, Petra I so sorry to hear that. I am hopping surgery will be successful and  few months from now it will look like a bad dream for you. Sunnybrook is the place to go in the situation like this, their trauma unit is probably the best, and they do not miss things - that's from my first hand experience. Good luck for the next 24 hours and everyone is hopping for some better news.

So sorry to hear this Keld - hang on to that positive attitude, it will carry you thru. Petra, let Heather or I know if there's anything we can do to help.
