Over the bars and landed on something hard & sharp.

Got caught out by the the corner of a plank of wood as I rode down some steps. Straight over the bars and landed on the corner of a footbridge. I have never been in so much pain.

ruined coat

I really liked this coat

I was going too fast in the dark and there was a gate. No pictures of the injuries but there was whiplash and grazes.
