work buddies try jumpin your bike!
So we're in work with not alot to do this evenin when i hear "make a ramp!" So que me makin a 1ft ( i know not the biggest :oops: ) ramp out of an old pallet and mdf in the factory with bout 30ft run up. So i make my run up slowly and hit the ramp but hit the pallet with my back wheel to the amusment of my workmate.
So a couple o gos later gettin faster and faster and eventually clear it. So my workmate says "First go, i'll show you how its done!" Bombs down the factory, hits the ramp, takes off and promptly flys straight over the bars onto a concrete floor! :o
Thank god he was ok, just a bit winded and a few scrapes. And my bike was in one peice too just scuffed brakes.
I suppose the moral of the story is don't let someone try somethin if they don't know what they're doin! He could have really hurt himself. I know it'll be a long time before i hand my bike over willy nilly :o! Tommorrow i'll tell you how my mum gets on with a 10ft drop off :wink: . (insert random joke here!)
