    could we please keep this type of comment out of this thread please. if you have an issue with cyclists, start a new thread, or find one of the many others already started, but can we keep this one clean and free of that rubbish for those of us who are actually cyclists or have an interest in cycling.

    thanks.

    Agreed, leave it out of this thread. This is the one thread that we have been able to discuss cycling without putting up with the anti cycling rubbish like that comment.

    came off at over 40km/h on sat...




    at the end of a nice cruisy ride with a mate, less than a km from home (solo by this stage) and a black cat comes flying out of the bushes and straight in to my front wheel. stupid animal. after picking myself up off the road wondering what the hell just happened, i was informed by a motorist who had stopped, that the cat just ran away.
    pics don't really tell the story. it was cold saturday, so i had 4 layers on, which was a good thing as it ripped a hole through 3 of them and still left grazes on knee, hip, elbow and shoulder. my shoulder took the brunt of it but thankfully nothing is broken but my ribs are very sore on left side, along with my shoulder. starting to be able to move my arm above the horizontal today.
    I'm pretty careful when i ride, but some things you just can't account for. thankfully insurance will cover repairs to the bike and new clothes. all covered under house contents.

    Ewwwwwww, ugly Rob.
    Lucky you come off not too bad considering the outcome.
    My neighbour near on died a few months ago due to the fall he had - was in hospital a month and only just swung his leg over again.
    Wish him luck.
    I have parked mine for a while - just not that keen anymore, suppose just too damn busy but not making the time tbh and thought of coming off hurts enough !
    YNWA ! off to CL 2018.
    Sydney is Sky Blue HAL Premiers/Champions 2017 - the Double.
