Well... it happened and I lived to tell the tale.
Tuesday 27th March - I was out on my bike in Little Gaddesden and was deliberately hit and knocked over by a car from behind. A witness said they saw them readying to push me over then the car swung to the left and side swiped me as it passed.
I crashed inwards, into the road and fortunately the car behind was able to stop. Injuries are a badly gashed elbow, and various contusions and swellings on my right leg and knee.
Could have been a gonner.
What can you say about someone who does that (they speeded off into the distance, cheering). Nothing really. Just thank goodness your alive, okay and hope to resume IM training at the earliest opportunity.
Bike is in Phil Corley cycles in intensive care. Will report back on its condition.
