On Saturday, leisurely going round Cathkin, which I ride pretty much weekly, with a mate. On the steepest of the 3 descents, manual off the first drop, land ok....next thing I'm in an ambulance on way to hairmyres. Dunno what happened but think front wheel washed out. I went down hard on my face and was unconscious and blood pissing out. My pal Stuart did a great job of securing area and getting ambulance in. Was fitted with neck brace and had loads of xrays and ct scan before getting moved to monklands plastic surgery unit where they sewed my face together and reset my nose. Home today, can only eat yogurt and porridge but feeling better. Bike is perfect. Prescription specs and helmet totalled.
Could have been sooo much worse :-[
