:shock: :oops: Me bits are a.. well a bit swollen now :oops: :shock:

Riding down the end of my own road this morning after just setting off and I hit an unexpected bump that wasn't there yesterday, the saddle shot up as the rear wheel bounced and I took one full on to the gentleman's coin purse. Man did that hurt!

Going to have to make a complaint about my road again. Its falling to pieces and parts of it havent been sorted in over 10 years. :roll:

    You have my sympathy, I've done that many a time on my MTB, never had them swell up though :shock:

  • Some roads in my london borough are on a 14 year resurfacing cycle! You may have a similar turnaround. Hope the pain subsides soon fella.

    So when you phoned to complain, did the person on the phone say "Could I just take your name, Miss......?"

    :P

    I whipped round a corner in the dark a few weeks back just after setting out, it's a sharp right down a very short (10 meters) steep slope.

    As I got near the bottom I suddenly remembered to look out for the speed cushions (sort of hadn't woken up yet)

    However, at that point I had actually got air off one of them and I landed quite hard on knacker sack, luckly I also pedalled my shin so that hurt more and took the edge off the pain in the groin.
