Had my first road contact this morning on the way in. Diesel/petrol spillage on the corner between Heston Road and Jersey Parade. Felt bike slipping from under me, managed to unclip as I went down. Got about a 3 inch diamater road rash on my left knee, numerous layers on my right calf, and bruised knuckles. My new gloves are also damaged on the palms (rather them than me) What was most annoying was the numerous motorists, pedestians and one cyclist on a Trek Madone who didn't even offer to help or see if I was ok. I have cleaned the wounds as best as I can (bit of a wimp), and applied bandages. Is this the best method? Also any cyclists using the great west road, there are 3 consecutive bus shelters been smashed from Osterley onwards so watch out for all the broken glass in the cycle path.
