It has finally happened. This morning on my way to work I found myself "horse-shoe" around a give way sign.
It was a bad day to begin with, being that we had a storm over night and naturally the next morning there are big white clouds excessively illuminating everything. That coupled with me leaving my sun glasses at work the previous day made for hazardous riding to begin with.
So as I'm cruising into work, about 45 minute commute, I come over the crest of a hill and literally just over the crest some guy in his ute had decided to do a U-turn! Of all places!!
I had what felt like less than a second to respond to the situation, I hung left to attempt to take the footpath whilst on heavy break to avoid the tray of the ute.
Unfortunately the moment the bike was off the road and onto that thin little Dickie patch of grass that divides the road and the footpath it was all over, my bike vanished from under me.
Now I'm in an unsettled state of mind and just need to get this out, cheers for reading.!
