... the kerb. Yes - that's right, the kerb. I was proudly taking my 6 year old son to the Manchester Skyride yesterday and decide to show him how to go up a kerb without dismounting. It didn't work - cue Mummy promptly going over the handlebars, landing on elbows! All I managed to do was convince him not to attempt that move (maybe a good thing) and wear his elbow pads. On a good note, we did continue to the train station (yes we hadn't even got to the train station at this point) and had a lovely time at the Skyride. And the incident has convinced me I am better off on roads, even with traffic.
