So tell me, do you have any other siblings and after Julian's sacking and your pavement interface, are they now watching out for meteorites?

Nope.  Phil's currently rocking the cycling specs:

Very pretty. And crucially, you can still tell the difference, which I understand is important.

Yeah, so I'm told. 

The pictures of the offending oil slick that soaked into my jeans didn't come out so you'll have to imagine them.

This is probably not gory enough for this thread:


First tandem crash, caused by random wild creature who we couldn't find afterwards. From its awesome turn of speed I suspect it was a pole cat (there are a few of them around there).

Animal! Yargh! Splat!

That took a split second to happen. Didn’t have time to react at all before it ran into the right hand side of the front wheel and we fell to the right. No sign of animal after.

*wince*

I'm always shocked by how RED blood looks when viewed through my customised monitor gamma settings.  In real life it's a generic dark colour that's hard to differentiate from mud, oil or poo...
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

If it was yesterday's injury it's a knee, I think.

My elbow has gone yellow and purple.

Cor, Clarion, that's a splendid bit of gore.  Hope it heals up ok as it looks like quite a lot of skin isn't there anymore.

My elbow has now gone black. But I prefer black to gory! The scab on my knee cracks in half and oozes gunge into my leg warmers when I ride the bike.

Came off on a wire mesh covering on a bit of bridging on NCN 45, and managed to bend my elbow backwards somehow.
Looks like an adequate amount of gore, but which stayed inside.
