MTB Ride to Longnor Sat 11th Dec 3010

Postby bike5rider » Sun Dec 12, 2010 11:07 pm

Calm, mild, sunny, cold, windy, gusty, dark, bloody windy, mist, nursing roadies back - all in an afternoons bike ride - but at least there was no ice to spoil the day :-D

You did better than both Chris Quin and I!! We both ended up in A+E, Chris after 2 miles, he decided to try and use his chin as a brake. I got concussion and whiplash 500 yards after setting off...

Lots of Black Ice on Sunday morning. A few spills on the easy ride, everyone OK .

Hope that you are both OK. Sunday was deadly round us for black ice. The road between Rushton and Congleton was shut because of an overturned car and our lane was still a sheet of ice at lunchtime. Even the dogs were sliding around - their faces were a picture. One of those days when I don't (much) resent my enforced idleness.

5 stitches in my chin, a couple of brusined ribs and a bruised ego. Luckily no broken bones, I was "trying" to take it easy, so I wasn't going very fast. :oops:

Thing is, why does it always happen at the start of your ride? I'd much rather have had 50 miles under my belt and then have a spill, at least I'd feel less unfit. :roll:
