[*] If you weren't riding the bike at the time!
That reminds me of one of pushbike episodes.
It's the 4th week of autumn term, I had destroyed my watch and blazer coming off pushbike in 2 previous incidents that term.
The previous term I had cut open a shirt on a branch I still have the scar on my back then there was the matter of the snapped off a pedal.
At some point I was put infront of head master for over taking the deputy head going to school.
Long and short of it my mum told me if I crashed my bike again I would not be allowed on it again...
Well we had steep drive at the top I always flicked my foot over the saddle to go of at the bottom...
Wet leaves on concrete on the corner as I slowed.
You got it down on my arse I went with a crack. Some how ending up with my bike round my neck, quick check, blazer undamaged, watch & bag undamaged.
Buckled bike wheel, not an issue I can fix them.
What was that crack? My frigging Ankle...
Luckily convinced mum that as scars and marks round my neck, demonstrated I was not on my bike and did not crash my bike when I broke my ankle... I could carry on riding.
Although looking back it might of been 6 weeks of school run, because of son on crutches... That put me back on road...
