    What a strange conclusion to arrive at.

    Of course, you had better hope that you are never that Idiot.

    It just reinforced to me why I never get separated from my bag.

    Big pat on the back OP, you really did the right thing and i hope that your mobile workshop that’s better equipped than my LBS bag turns up

    Firstly, thanks for the offers of spares and / whiprounds. I appreciate it.

    Secondly thanks to the guy who rescued it from potential thieves. I hope to collect it tonight. As I have go back to unlock the guys bike…..

    Not sure of how the bloke came off….it looked like a clipped pedal and then stump in to face….but that is guesswork.

    The ambulance arrived first then 40mins later a vehicle with a Polaris aboard to gain access….it was quite an event!!

    I had a similar experience a couple of years back. after resuming my ride having packed the unfortunate rider and what was left of his chin in to an ambulance and having my bag stolen, the frame on my beloved Rock lobster snapped. I’ve had better days but not many better bikes.

    First rule of first aid.

    look out for yourself first. That includes not leaving your stuff with total strangers.

    Admirable stuff though, hope you get your kit back.

    Good work, well done and having been on the receiving end of the help of strangers when I broke my leg, thank you.

    Was not expecting such pedantry.

    And that was your biggest mistake.

    But seriously, good work and I hope it’s reaffirmed your faith in human nature now that you’re happily reunited with your bag.

    I’ve previously had a backpack I left on the street returned to me via a friend, weeks later, when a resident stopped him and asked if he knew whose it was.

    Also a complete stranger returned my £350 smartphone after I dropped it in on a trail in the Lakes.

    🙂

    Hope it’s your bag. Well done for helping someone out, I’m sure they really appreciate it.

    If someone did steal your bag, it would add moral contrast to the situation between the twattery of the thief, and kindness of a guy who helped a stranger! Extra karma for you! 8) *

    Well done for helping out.

    Should similar happen again, the Forest Holidays site is just round the corner from the red trail and there would be first aid help there.
