- Over the bars palm skid. Oooooof.
When I used to ride, I would never ride without gloves, for exactly that reason, and those gloves have not only saved my palms and fingertips, but the Oakley ones with carbon knuckle protection saved my knuckles a couple of times from being smashed by car door mirrors, when slow-moving cars passing close to me have stopped suddenly with the car overlapping the cycle lane and my hand has smashed the mirror back against the car.Posted 6 months ago
I’d ride without a lid, never without gloves.singletrackmindMember
When I was 13 – 14 me and a mate used to do a huge sunday paper round. It took 2 of us to carry and deliver the papers and over an hour to deliver them all. One day on the way home , paddaling down a hill at about 25mph a dog ran ot and my mate caught it square on .Posted 6 months ago
He flew a fairway then landed on his arse in a huge pile of horse shit.
This lubricted the ensueing slide and considering the impact and journey along the tarmac he got away with just a small abount of road rash on his hands and hips.
Dog was never seen again.
