Funny enough, I fractured my right elbow falling off on the cycle path into Addenbrooks Hospital in Cambridge. Annoyingly, I then rode several miles past the hospital before realising something really wasn't right and having to make my way back to A&E.......



You pair are obviously allergic to the NHS. :mrgreen:

Suggest you try BUPA next time out. :wink:

At the very least I'd want the accident officially logged and the layout investigated with a view to it being altered- widened into the verge if nothing else.

Glad you're okay, and good luck with the new bike.
