Yes, it involved a corner, a crashing noise behind me, much blood, a long wait, a trip in an ambulance and a some very expensive dentistry. I am not exactly sure how he did it, but a long time riding partner of mine decided to throw himself onto the tarmac face first. I spent the hour waiting for the ambulance assessing his head injury, repeatedly answering the same questions about 30 times and also trying to tell him that yes I did let him speak to his wife after I called her to keep her in the loop. I totally missed that somehow he had snapped a tooth. On the plus side I had his bike cleaned and repaired within a few days, so once he is ready to get back on his horse he has one less thing to worry about. I got the team car (the wife) home as it was a bit far to walk both bikes.Curiosity got the better of me ,there must be a story from November ride ?
Apologies for my tardiness but the end of the month has crept up on me so here we go the monthly update
We have 18 riders fully posted up leaving 7 riders to post so a nudge for @Sbudge ,@slow scot @PatrickPending ,@Cranky Knee Girl ,@Houthakker ,@lane and @Vantage
It's good to see the 3 riders who litterally crashed out of the challenge are back on their bikes hopefully training for 2021
No request for byes yet anyone struggling to justify a ride let me know
Sorry for the over zealous nudge it was a rushed post normally I do check before posting . I had seen your post but somehow my high tech paper tick list let me down . User error I guessDid mine a couple of weeks back - its on page 43 - also managed a 63Km ride last weekend but was too tired to enter it into my log of rides....still haven't thinking about it....
That's a shame @Vantage you've really battled on to get this far . But I completely understand your decision at the end of the day cycling should be funI'll not be completing this challenge I'm sorry to say.
Between health issues, drivers trying to kill me and generally crappy weather, I've lost all interest in cycling.
Hopefully it's not permanent but for now the Wayfarer is little more than a dust gathering ornament in the living room.
Wishing you all the best for the rest of the challenge and thanks for all the encouragement yous have given me.
I'll continue to watch from the sidelines.
