Day 18 – Bikes

  • 맛집영어 영어수강 영어교재 이미지


  • I met my friend Mike on the weekend to ride bikes. We usually meet twice a month to ride our bikes quite far. There are trails all around the city that go along the river and up through the mountains. It is a really refreshing feeling, especially when we are feeling blue. One trail ride usually takes about two or three hours to finish, and we have lunch together before we head home. It happened on our way down a high slope when going home. There were a lot of rocks on the trail since it was in the countryside and not in the city anymore. Not a large rock, but small pebbles here and there. Mikes tire hit one of the rocks and made the bike turn suddenly.

    I was in front of Mike at the time, but I heard him yell and then I saw him fly past me and land on the ground. He had been launched from his bike and tumbled down the trail till it evened out. I rode down till I got to him, and he was laying in a painful position. I was so scared, and he started to cry. There were some other people riding bikes near us and they rushed over to help. We were able to get Mike up and take him to the hospital.

    It has been about a week since then. I call every so often just to touch base with him and see how he is doing. He said the doctor told him he has a broken leg. He isn’t allowed to go out and he isn’t allowed to ride his bike for a few months. The doctors did all they could, and they told him the ball was in his court for how quickly he can recover. I am really glad Mike is fine now and he will get better soon. It was so scary to see that happen, and now I take my time and am very careful when riding my bike.





    Expressions


    "The ball is in your court" : It's your decision or responsibility to do something now.


    "Touch base" : To make contact or reconnect with someone briefly.


    "Feeling blue" : Feeling sad.
