A bike can be mended and with the sound of it you should be ok.At this speed i used to use my feet,also had strong leg muscles then.

bit of a bugger john.....

makes you feel shit to scratch the bike eh?...don't worry, we've all done it.  My uncle always reckoned you weren't a real biker until you've been off at least three times!.:huh:....not sure about that one!

Aye

it takes the right tyres on the right bike to have a chance in situations like that - one of the downsides of riding in winter.


I've said it before - crash protection is seriously worth it if you're not on a bike designed to survive being dropped. Really consider it if you're going to ride through winter once you and your bike are patched up.

On the other hand - where's the phquing snow? I want some!
