Hi BigKev32. Sounds like you are local. We have a new club - Stockport Tri (sister club to Bramhall Runners) that might be of interest. There is training in one or other discipline almost every day. An internet search should locate our website
I had a cycling accident a few years ago that left me with a "severe" brain injury. Among a lot of other things this has left me partially sighted. I was in hospital for months (and in a coma for some time). I still undergo regular therapy; can no longer go to work. I have been told that I will not do so again. My brain injury related change of personality is very difficult for my family and I am in real danger of loosing them. Thank God I was wearing a helmet. I have no idea of the outcome if I hadn't been but am glad that I didn't take the risk. By the way I have no memory of how the accident happened (nor of rather a lot such as my children being born/growing up). If there is the slightest chance that they can save lives/reduce injury, we must wear one. Please.
