When ambition tries to overcome the laws of physics

Post by Fabian on Sun Sep 22 2013, 05:14

The likelihood of surviving the ridiculously steep fire access trail that i was trying to negotiate was nothing less than a suicidal attempt, but sometimes ambition tries to overcome the laws of physics; especially when the bicycle trailer is trying to jackknife the bike; shortly followed by the trail turning from dry ground into an even steeper & muddier slope; preventing any chance of turning around.
Today was the first time that i've crashed once (spectacularly) and been "run over" twice; firstly by flying through the air and impacting the deck; head first, then being run over by the bike, followed shortly thereafter by the trailer as the kit and caboodle careened over the top of me at speed which wasn't going to present a good outcome.

Although i'm not feeling particularly comfortable, it was all worth it (purely to gather data for science); showing that the human body is capable not only of unpowered mid-air flight, but also surviving a double hit and run.

The helmet bears scars of an obvious head trauma; this is never good! Furthermore, you don't mention whether you sustain any injuries, at all - are you alright?!?

As we speak, i am perfectly ok, though at the time of the spill the left hand side of my body took a huge pounding when i hit terra firma.
Surprisingly i only suffered a bad headache even though the bicycle helmet suffered serious structural damage, which goes to show just how hard i hit the ground.
