crashed my bike the other day on the way to work. i was going over the bridge that i cross every day in the cycle lane. i was forced over to the right by some idiot and ended up clipping the railing that seperates the bike lane from the cars. went down face first in to the floor. quickly got back up and carried on riding before i noticed the blood pouring from my head. i decided that i could make it to work so i kept going. when i realised that i had lost my bike glasses i turned round to go back for them, at this point i realised that i was in shock decided to sit down and call everyone until someone showed up to take me to the hospital where i had a few stitches and cleaned up all my wounds.
people always make fun because i wear full bike kit, helmet, gloves etc but no doubt that helmet saved me. but these are the same people who left me bleeding from the head on the side of the road without so much as an 'are you okay?' not a good day but could have been worse so...
just thought i'd share that in case anyone has second thougths about buying a helmet.
