Importance of gloves!

My pride and joy is in a coma right now after I was knocked off after being pulled out on. I was wearing all the right equipment and thankfully got away with just a broken wrist, a ligament tear and a numb knee.

I am absolutely sick of seeing riders riding without gloves! What do you put down first out of reaction? Your hands! I know it's tempting not to wear them during the summer but if I wasn't wearing mine I'd probably have no fingers left to type this story.

It's so easy to get knocked off and only takes one bad decision so please be sensible. :)
