ONE afternoon recently, while cycling along Four Pools Road, an item I’d just bought found its way into my front spokes. In an instant, I’d flown over the handlebars and landed on the kerb. Entirely my own fault for not carrying it more safely, but mercifully I wasn’t travelling very fast and there were no cars around. It could have been much worse; so far there seems to be no lasting damage.
While sitting at the side of the road in a state of pain, disbelief and shock, a gentleman came to make sure I was OK, and very kindly transported me and my bike home in his van.
Given the shock, I’m not sure how much sense I made at the time – and there are small gaps in my memory – but I’d like to publicly express my sincere gratitude for his kindness. I’d also like to thank the staff at the minor injury unit for their prompt and caring service.
Needless to say, the new bike will have the means to carry things safely, and will come with a helmet!
