    Had my first off on my road bike this morning, used to coming off mtb's were 99% of the time you know its coming not so on the roadie. One second was barreling along next am on the deck unclipped and the bike is a good six feet away could not believe how fast I went down. Was my own stupid fault for pushing it in the rain am off shopping for a new helmet now as my current one did not survive.

    On the recent manchester- blackpool run I can recall thinking to myself 'theres a pothole in that puddle.....' next thing I know I was sliding down the road on my back, my front wheel having parted company with the bike (QR must have worked loose). It can be grim- be careful out there!

    Bike appears to be ok no major scratches or dings, no major damage to me either thanks, glad nothing was right behind me.
