    Well - I guess that is the only time it is good advice. You don't really want to be tangled up with your bicycle as you hurl yourself into the water.

    Is that what they mean?

    Actually not that unreasonable!

    Taxi in river

    Mercedes in river

    ... and again!



    Perhaps they though that cyclists are as thick as some drivers!

    Deep water as well, so you shouldn't land on any bikes in there !!!
     
  6. Speaking as someone who's ridden a bike into a swimming pool a number of times, I can only say it doesn't hurt that much.

    I guess if you rode full tilt into those railings, you would dismount, fairly quickly, forwards...

    So perhaps it isn't an instruction, but an advertisment to alert spectators to a possible future exciting event....

    Oh, I miss my Ratty. I mean, she's being looked after for me OK, well, I assume so, unless Roger's sold her into slavery...

    This one always makes me think of heading off to explore the world...

    Although, as she's not seagoing, I wouldn't get that far...
