I hope you didn't rest any part of your bicycle against the bridge wall, lest you be determined to have wilfully injured it, and hence be transported for life.

That is pretty impressive.

Basilic: I will be riding the Tour de Pays de Vaud next week. That is in your area right?

Had a week in Cannes, and had a nice ride over Col de Vence and up towards Greolieres des Neiges. Not many cars and beautiful landscape

Aren't they repairable? I've been using antiseptic cream and spray on my gravel rash, seems to work well.

'On the Road' indeed!

These were pretty trashed. Had some nice 'ventilation' though! Meant to say that all in all, I'm in one piece so I can hardly complain. It wasn't a busy road, but you always have to thank your lucky stars that there wasn't someone coming in the opposite direction.

Cream seems to be working ok...honestly was a great ride, just coulda done without the sliding on my side at 55kph. Time does seem to slow down.

@ultyguy

Sorry to hear about your crash!
This may be of interest to you (and anyone else who has ever crashed and experienced "time slowing down") -

Nearing the start of winter in north-east Australia, lucky temperatures don't get far below 12 deg in the mornings!
