Apart from family, what could be more important than wine and bikes? Of course, there might be the odd rant about other topics on here too...

I guess I was lucky

Some gobshite rolled a dolly - ladened with construction supplies - out from between two vans right into my path as I was riding to work this morning, and I rode right into it. Luckily, I was on my Strida and was able to land on my feet without having to throw the bike to get a leg over it. Luckily, I didn't have time to consider swerving since there was a line of cars right beside me. Luckily, it only cost $10 to fix. Luckily, I walked away.

That's my first accident on a bike since I was about 8 years old. Luckily.
