The Mountain of Croagh Patrick, Co Mayo, Ireland. is the place where St. Patrick climbed, fasted for 40 days and banished all the snakes from the land for ever. On the last Sunday of July every year a pilgramage is done and people climb Mt. Croagh, some bare foot, to the church that was built at the summit. I've always wanted to do it, as it's a family thing, though I never have. Anyway yesterday I hit a mahoosive pothole (about 5ft x 5ft x 6 inch) drafting a car at speed on Kirkashulme Lane, Longsight. Yep, near the same place some lemming walked out on me about three week back. I shouldn't have been drafting cars at that speed, it's a bad habbit I've always done. I seen the hole though I was on my fixed bike and struggled jumping 5ft. Ive blew the tyre and bent the handle bars So I went over the handle bars proper comedy style lol. Banged my head and got a few scrapes n aches. So all is good. Ambulance was called as blood was coming from my head, people stopped and some realy nice asian ladies looked after me before the ambulance came and I have their phone # lol The police officer on the scene wa also so nice, said 'I could pick my bike up at Longsight police station after I get out of A+E as its open till 6pm. though if its after 6pm use the yellow phone outside the police station and the'll get my bike so I can get home. '"nice I thought Got out of A+E after 4 hours, about 6.30pm. No phone, no money, no one who could pick me up So I had to walk to Longsight police station. Problem is I have only got cycling shoes. So I walked it bare foot. I must of looked a right lemon lol. Gets to the police station and used the yellow phone as the station was shut for the general public. Someone on the phone answers and I explain my situation about how PC XXXX said I could pick my bike up. I got the answer. 'No, no, no, with a definite NO! So a walk home was my only option. I tried walking in my cycling shoes for a while. This must have looked so funny, decided to get laughed at going bare foot for the next two mile instead lol On my way home I passed the place where I came off, so decided obviously to inspect the 5ft x 5ft x 6 inch pot hole the threw me off my bike. Though the mahoosive pot hole had disappeared, banished ! where was it ? Just some fresh tarmac was only evident. Wow !
