Subject: RE: BS: I fell off my bike:-(
From: Doug Chadwick

I went for a ride on my bike yesterday for the first time in a couple years - 4 miles, no hills but some rough ground. I expected to feel the efects this morning but nothing untoward.

Nearly 20 years ago, at the end of foot and mouth outbreak, I felt that it was my public duty to re-open an overgrown bridleway. As I pedalled slowly through the long grass in bottom gear, my front wheel stopped dead in a hidden rut. The rest of the bike and I continued on and I went straight over the handlebars, landed flat on my back and was completely winded. As I lay there gasping for breath, staring at the sky, I realised that nobody could see me in the long grass, even though I was only a few hundred yards from the houses. It was at that point that I decided to buy a mobile phone.

Once you reach 40 there is no shame in riding an electric bike.
You can get a nice new 36V folding electric bike for $600
If you live in mountainous areas I recommend 48 Volts.
There's no need to spend alot for a lithium E bike.
You will get 20 miles per charge easy.

Way back when I had an Atala roadbike, spent my last penny on it and then some, with Campangolo hardware and a Brooks saddle which I'd gotten off an old Peugeot. I sold it when bikes with bigger frames became available but left the perfectly broken in saddle on it when I let it go. Could of kicked myself, I never found another one that good.

My last decent bike was a Claude Butler. Very similar to the one you describe, Steve. I used to cycle to Swinton station in the morning, get the train to Wigan with my bike in the goods wagon then cycle from Wigan Wallgate to Standish. Coming back it was easier to get the train from Shevington but I can't remember why!

You were lucky, Jim. Racing bikes are set up with steep frame angles which makes the frame very stiff. Definitely not set up for comfort. They used to call knackered old bikes bone-shakers, but that name is far more fitting for racing bikes...

My first serious bike was given to me by a workmate, an electrician who had been a rally cyclist - as an apprentice I was unable to afford one and when I told him he gave me one of his old racers - he had become arthritic
A week after I was able to master it safely I cycled to a friend's flat in South Liverpool (called The Dingle then, now known as Toxteth) - a place with a reputation
I parked the bike in the area in front and knocked on the door, and was invited in, we sat talking for a few minutes and my mate's mother asked, "How did you get here?" - I told here I had cycled
"Where did you leave your bike?" she asked - I told her
"It'll be long gone by now" she said - it had

You have my sympathy. When we first first moved to Yorkshire I was expecting to lose my driving licence as I was caught by the police travelling in excess of 100 mph and so I got back to riding a bicycle and did used to enjoy it. For a while I used to ride 30 miles a day but I don’t think I do it now. Going down a local hill at some speed the whole bike began to shudder and I thought I was going to crash at full speed (probably 35mph +) and it was terrifying.

Glad you are ok

As for lycra-wearing cyclists, any one who doesn't avail themselves of all the advantages of comfort and aerodynamics that high tech duds offer is going to have a hard time keeping up with a pack of determined cyclists on lightweight road bikes who are outfitted in that manner, to say nothing of pulling off a 300+ mile ride unless you're just poking along and camping when you're tired. Done that.
Nowadays I wear wicking gym shorts and lightweight long sleeve uv-blocking fishing shirts and ride a comfort bike with shocks at the front fork and seat which allow me to ride on sidewalks when necessary without rattling out my fillings. It's an XL frame to accommodate my tall stature and with it's upright handle bars my CoG is so high that the handling is relatively poor and probably was the main reason for my recent crash.

I gave up cycling when I realised that i could no longer steer with one hand, so no more hand signals.
I think it is to do with my disc problem as I have to support my upper body via the arms from the handlebars.
Perhaps a recliner bike is the answer. Another deterent is that we are a mile from an adopted road so we need off-road capability, and that tends to rule out the tricycle option looking at the surfaces required to be ridden over ( how do you wheel a tricycle as opposed to a bike?).
And then there is the 1 in 6 hill that I would have to climb to get back home.

I made a rough-and-ready whimsical calculation tonight. If the government scrapped HS2 and allocated the money saved to buying bikes, there would be enough dough to buy a pretty decent bike, let's say 400 quid's worth, for every able-bodied adult in the land. Instead, we hear from Grunt Crapps today that he's allocating a few quid to create pop-up bike paths here there and everywhere. As if we'll ever ever see 'em. Cynical Tory bollocks as ever.

Still, back to the cheery topic of guys falling off bikes... ;-)

Mrs Steve and I both have hybrids. Mine's a 30-year-old Specialised and it still goes like a good 'un. Hers is a Trek. Nothing fancy. Bikes made for having fun on, on or off-road, and not for Lycra-wearing miseryguts to be seen on. I still wear baggy cycling shorts that I've had for yonks. There can be quite an entertaining sight to see thereby if I'm coming towards you head-on, but I care not a jot...

A few years back, I borrowed a friend's electric standup scooter to run an errand. While going very slowly to get the feel of the scooter, I tested the brakes and the front one seized. I was projected over the handlebars, blowing a tendon in my wrist.
The first surgery was an attempt to transplant another tendon to pull things together. It didn't take, resulting in a second surgery to fuse the wrist. Be careful. I don't recommend this to anyone.

Get a yourself a proper sturdy well balanced Hybrid road/off road bike..
with puncture resistant tires, and a comfy seat..

There are reasonable priced sales deals on most of the time...

Bike prices have become stupidly too high because of the lycra poseurs,
but sensible Hybrid bikes can still be found at affordable prices..

Bike cams are worth considering for accident evidence...

It's not safe to let a car overtake you on your bike on a bend, as Mr Red describes. Not only does a car coming in the opposite direction have to take evasive action, the overtaking car is liable to swerve back in and collide with the cyclist. After many years and many thousands of miles of both urban and rural cycling, I found that the effective solution for the cyclist, having assessed the situation, is to move to the centre of his carriageway, preventing the overtaking manoeuvre from happening until he's safely round the bend. On busy roads, one of the most dangerous things a cyclist can do is to timidly hug the kerb, or even ride inside the carriageway white edge line. You have no margin for escape if some imbecile overtaking doesn't give you room, and that's where all the bits of glass and other debris are anyway... It's your road as much as it's the man's in the tin overcoat, more so in some ways as at least you're not polluting the air. Gotta be assertive!

I used to cycle everywhere when younger - even in London, till I saw the Traffic
When I lived in Speke (outside Liverpool) I used to go off on long rides with friends at night - one night as far as Warrington, over the Transporter Bridge
On the way home I cycled too close to the hedge and a branch caught my front spokes and threw me over the handlebars
My mate walked me home carrying my bike on his shoulder
Don't you do daft things when you're young ?
The closest call I had was cycling to work on the docks in Liverpool
I was riding down Everton Valley when my wheel got suck in the tramlines - I really could have been killed that morning
If I had, I have family who wouldn't have come to the funeral - they'd have never forgiven me for dying so close to Everton Football Ground
It's a bit like that in Liverpool, which is one of the reasons why I left - that and the Beatles :-)

There was a bicycle story about Kirkby (the other place I lived - very rough)
A couple were riding along one of the roads there on a tandem when a dog ran out and threw a bucket of water over them :-)

I have lost count the number of cars on the wrong side of the road overtaking cyclists on fast roads on bends. And it is me who has to slow down, in a hurry. At the moment there are a lot of MAMILs - hence more impatient, irresponsible drivers (percentage wise). You would think the current "clapping for medical workers" culture would engender more consideration generally. Not IME. The innocent driver is more likely to be an essential worker!

Even before retirement I was happy to wait to overtake cyclists.

Before I retired I used to drive 30 minutes up and back to my workplace on a mostly featureless main road with long stretches of open areas either side and no street lights or buildings. There were quite often cyclists riding along the road, and I assume they were riding to and from work, and this included well before sunrise in the winter months. One morning there were ambulance and police cars in a dark bit of road. I found out later that there had been a piece of timber lying sideways across the cycle path and the cyclist hit it in the dark, went over the handlebars and died at the scene from head injuries. As far as I remember the timber was not big in width but it was long and a colour which was hard to see in the dark.

So I was talking before about video-worthy stacks but in fact I think you were very lucky not to be more seriously injured.

Another noteworthy cycle stack I heard about on a TV medical emergency show was about a pre-teenage boy who went over the handlebars and instinctively tried to break his fall with his hands. He broke both wrists. The doctor told him he may need help wiping his own bum. The boy was not impressed.

For a good number of years I cycled to work, for four years from Loughton to Walthamstow (including a nice stretch of the North Circular), about 14 miles a day. Thereafter, from the wrong side of Bude to Holsworthy, about 20 miles a day (with 800 feet of climbs per day!). In the early 90s I was cycling around 6000 miles per year, then one of my knees went dicky in about 1994. Since then I've just ridden me bike for fun and in a gentle manner. In all that time I came off my bike just twice, once on a patch of oil when I was cornering and once when I foolishly decided to cycle to work on roads that were ice rinks (they don't tend to salt the more minor roads round here). No harm done on the ice, but the first time I collected very similar damage and injuries to yours. These days there are potholes everywhere round here, but the people here still vote Tory...

Hello, Dave. I'm glad you are okay.

A few years ago, I was in Scotland, and I asked a bartender what Scotch would make a good gift to thank the friend who was cat sitting for us. He recommended Famous Grouse, so we bought a bottle for the friend and one for us. It was excellent. I should have known it would be therapeutic.

Feel better, Dave. A few weeks ago I was coming down a short stretch of sidewalk after a long ride and a generation z'er came toward me with his arms laying across the handlebars cradling his smart phone, ear buds in and totally oblivious. When I was almost even with him he swerved toward me and I left the pavement to avoid him and my wheel caught in the indent between the turf and the sidewalk and over I went. Luckily I came away with just a badly skinned knee and no visible damage to my bike while the dude just rolled on past without looking up. I forgot one my basic rules of cycling, "Everyone is out to get you."
