Wear a helmet kids!
I see you took his front brake away…..;-)
Our lad had a clark kent moment over his bars onto the gritty/gravelly chin shredder that is the Keswick railway line. I had to load him and his bike into the trailer – much to little sisters horror – and make haste to the cottage hospital. Much blood.Posted 6 years ago
He did the same manouvre a year later onto tarmac, but that meant an evening trip to casualty. Chicks dig scars mind and he’s learned to keep it loose when the steering gets lairy.
After my 4 year old nephew lost a few teeth in a bike shunt the other week we upgraded our little lad’s lid to a Trek Vapour Youth just before we went on holiday. Good job too 😯
His lip is a mess and the visor on the helmet took a beating but it probably saved his nose.
Running back to the holiday house with a blood soaked toddler isn’t something I want to repeat in a hurry but it could have been a lot worse. So, wear a helmet kids!
It was a proper proud dad moment when he asked to go out on it again the following day.Posted 6 years agorangerbillSubscriber
My son did similar when he was younger and the peak of his helmet saved his face. Im now that annoying git that goes round telling parents to adjust the helmet properly! Sorry, just dont like the thought of kids smashing faces on the ground.Posted 6 years ago
However, fantastic tankslapper and reminded me of this:cookeaaSubscriber
Ah the Nothe… grew up not too far away, used to clamber round on the rocks around there. Also had to visit Weymouth A+E once for a biking accident, don’t remember it though I was very concussed…
Healing Vibes, to the nipper, can’t watch those sort of accidents, once saw a 6-7 year old ride flat out face first into a tree at Chicksands, was not pleasant, My daughter needs a new Lid, how many companies make a toddler sized full facer?Posted 6 years agoRooleyMoorMember
My daughter came off her bike a while ago doing around 25mph (on the run down from Rooley Moor). She went straight over the handlebars after a pothole induce tailslapper pitched her over.
The helmet took the brunt, but she still ended up with cuts and bruises to her legs, arms, shoulders, stomach and a tiny graze on the tip of her nose.
I’d hate to think what would have happened if she hadn’t been wearing a helmet.
BTW it was a cheap halfords one, nowt special, but it did exactly as designed.
Glad he’s back on his bike!Posted 6 years agokonaboy2275Member
next time it could be a childs face…. Hope he’s ok 😀
Just taken the stabilisers off our 3 year olds bike this afternoon and he’s already doing laps of the lawn and heading for the step down onto the patio 😯
Time for him to put his helmet on! Luckily he hasn’t learnt how to set off properly without help yet though!Posted 6 years ago
