Richard was knocked off his bike yesterday morning. Car turned right in front of him, he hit the side did a double somersault, in a nice tucked position according to witnesses, and landed on his back a few feet down the road. Bike is wrecked, Richard escaped with bruises. Only the potato dumplings in tomato and chilli sauce in his courier bag prevented more serious injuries.
Forget the helmet debate, all riders must now carry gnocchi. I'm writing to the BMA
Yes, no lasting harm thank you. Feel a bit bruised today but considering distance travelled through air remarkably unscathed. I can only thank the 3 Peaks for providing massive amounts of practice at falling off.
Just writing to Fiat to suggest replacing airbags with giant potato dumplings... hmmmmm.
