Descending Heather Rd just below Stirling this morning and was heading around one of the left handers at about 60ish when my back wheel found a reasonably significant bump, cue the wheel jumping to the right and me going from rubber side down to skin side down quite quickly!Slid across the road and down the hill in to the grass & bushes before coming to a stop.
Can't speak highly enough of the Stirling doctor's, stayed open for us to get back up there & gave the road rash a proper clean before getting the doc to look me over. No significant injuries to myself or the bike but I'm gonna be in pain for a while with a dinner plate sized patch of road rash right on my left hip plus various other cuts & scratches on elbow, ankle & hands.
LOL!!!! You said what I was thinking ;-)
Yup, that's what I get for not doing the washing on Friday night...thought I'd get away with it as I was riding with others who I know to break the same rule. Little did I know footage was to spread all over the interwebz!!!
Trick for young players.
Mum always said; clean jocks and appropriate length socks.
