That's jolly good news - these things happen if you are bunch riding, and manhole covers are tricky.... tough, get over it I say....

It was 'just an accident' that's it - not as though the guy at the front was pulling wheelies and messing about....

Quote from article: "....were part of a group of enthusiasts who met up regularly for weekend bike rides"

That's so NOT how a cyclist would describe it! Sounds vaguely pervy this way!
 
Good news indeed.

This is something I quite often have flick through my mind on club runs, when everyone screams down a descent in a close pack. I am always the one hanging back, riding to my sightline a la my IAM motorbike training.

Some people have made comments about my descending being poor, but put me on a road with open sightlines and I will beat almost everyone I know through the curves.

Hang on - the sueing bloke rode into the back of someone? It's his fault then.
If you run into the back of someone, it's pretty much always your fault.

Some of them used to shave their legs and rub exotic oils into them. Seldom seen without a banana in their pocket...

He didn't even ride into him. He swerved to avoid him and hit the verge. He should be sueing the verge...

Fair comment. I'd missed the details of precisely what he hit.
