Evil Cycling's Capt'n Dave has a really nice lady friend named Carrie. They've been together for quite a long while... Boarding on common law marriage long while. Yet as great as they are together, they have found themselves to be in a bit of a pickle... and its a big pickle
Carrie crashed during a weekly Ironclad ride and shattered her thumb. Its not just broke (which for me would be bad enough) its SHATTERED. Meaning a difficult, extensive and painful surgery plus lots of down time for Carrie.
Their insurance company, being the way insurance companies are, promptly ran away to hide. Leaving Carrie and Dave holding the bag... a bag filled with 8k worth of medical bills.
