Arse...still sore 3 weeks after avoiding walker while descending Beeding Hill on SDW at R9, getting rutted and coming off, so go to get it checked out.

A relative speed where R1 is the maximum safe/sensible speed for the given conditions/vehicle.
Miles cycled 2014 = 3551.5 (Target 7300 :()
Miles cycled 2013 = 6141.4
Miles cycled 2012 = 4038.1

Ah. Thank you. Very familiar with speeds way in excess of R1 on the SDW.

Hit and run this morning!
Took some skin off a finger when it pushed the light cluster in, on the brakes at the time. Driver was stopped, blamed me blah blah, told them to pull over there and they made off behind Rayleigh station. I chased them but they got away in the back doubles there. No reg. no.

Bad lunch Del. Glad you managed to damage the car's light cluster.

On a timed run for my on-line TT group, tractor pulled out from my right at a T-junction and I had a choice of go round it possibly into traffic, or hug the kerb.  I hugged the kerb and got clipped by the rear wheel of the trailer as I came to a halt.

That looks like an unpleasant mix of actually sore and too close for comfort. I hope you heal well.

So there I was, still a bit sleepy from sleep - at the Tassimo, getting a coffee sometime around 9am on a Saturday. Fboab was out on a Veloviewer square bagging mission. I've tried to get into that shit, but it's still a Work in Progress.

My phone rings. It's Fboab.

Me: "Hi"
Fboab: "Hfffts...  jddsjhhh askkllojd"
Me: "Huh? You broke up a bit - say that again?"
Fboab: "FFFPpspps hughsga... barrier. I may have passed out"
Me: "Where are you?"
Fboab: "Towton Battlefield trail. Hang on... there's a guy with a dog"

Phone goes dead.

Phone rings.

Me: "Hello"
Guy with a dog: "Hi, is that Chris? I'm here with Li***** Fboab. She's come off her bike, we've called her an ambulance."
Me: "OK, how's she doing?"
Guy with a dog: "She's a little woozy, so she's lying on the grass, but she's talking. Her hands hurt, and she's clearly banged her head"
Me: "Keep me posted"
Guy with a dog: "Here's the ambulance. I'll call you back".

Phone rings.

Me: "Hi"
Guy with a dog: "Hi, OK she's on her way to York A&E"
Me: "Thank you so much for helping her."
Guy with a dog: "No worries. Her bike is here, but there's a lady who can take it back to her house - she has a van."
Me: "That's great, put her on...."

Aaaand so on.

Five hours in York A&E later



Also a broken finger. Not the impact kinda break - a bend the finger back so far it breaks kinda break  :sick:.

Ouch, heal quickly!

I'm now going similar shades down the back of my hand and inside the ankle, though far less painfull than anticipated.

There's nothing finer than turning up at a Difficult Supplier Meeting in Livingston looking like yer man likes a drrrrink. Unless it's trying to move house when you can't use your hands.

Not directly cycling, nor do I have a gory photo. I was pottering in the shed sorting out some wall-mounted bike tool storage which involved whittling the plastic holder for a set of Allen keys.  Stanley knife sliced off the top of my left index finger.  Stupid stupid stupid.  Mrs R helped to pack the finger up reasonably well and I finished off some lightweight pottering.  Then I found the tip of my finger on a shelf in the shed and felt a bit queasy. 

Will see how things go.  Need to restock the first aid kit in the morning.
