Topic - When was your last 'off'

andymac - on 06 Jun 2014

Mine was last night.

Cycling at full pelt ,with the wind in my sails.

Crested a billy groat Gruff bridge .seen a car approaching.dabbed the brakes as the road was wet.

Too late. Back end locked up .bike disappeared under me .(clips came off easily) .

And me ?

Well I disappeared into the undergrowth and careered forward uncontrollably ,like a 747 making an emergency landing in the jungle.

The sad bit is that the car never even stopped.they either thought it was a normal cycling manoeuvre ,or...., they were pissing themselves silly with laughter.

The woman I had passed not long before ,did stop .she hadn't seen my 'off' ,but she did catch me emerging from the bracken.

What followed was a conversation ,wiyh me trying to regain my composure ; a la Del Trotter after falling through the bar.

I was lucky.
