Incidentally- we have markers on our rides for the spectacular incidents. We have Barry's bush at the end of a long downhill. 20ft wide, made of hawthorn and very thick. Barry went straight through it without getting a mark on him. Mind you the bush did not look that damaged either. We reckon he went over the top, but we saw him hit the bush and then got worried trying to find out where he was, till we heard him groaning.
Then theres Mikes Marker. Dead straight bit of cycle track, good surface, but marked by the 8 ft tall steel pipes. No reason but he just ran straight into it at about 10 mph. That hurt as the bike stopped, he didn't and he damaged his manhood.
Then theres Doug's ****. Thats me by the way. Offroad muddy trail churned up by tractors with deep ruts in it. I was the last one in line and as all the rest fell off the trail or bike, I noted it and missed where they had failed. 10 yards from the end and the last rider in front of me just fell off sideways, I managed to miss him and all I had left was the final tyre rut that was filled with water. Put the power in, stayed in the rut and bike stopped. Over the top into 2 ft of water. In the rut, someone had put a massive great big log so the front wheel stopped and the rest of the bike didn't. Straight over the handlebars landed on my back in 2 ft of water, and never knew what happened. Got out so quick, that only my shorts were wet, but apparantly, I did completely disappear under water, And the splash was quite large.
Own up time- What are your incidents that are still remarked on by your riding buddies?
