    Since I know everyone is very worried about me I can reassure you all that I am alive and well.  I was head down at 25 mph and didn’t notice quickly enough that those ahead of me were slowing to turn right and I lost control under braking. As Martin commented, I acted most considerately and didn't take anyone else with me.  Strangely, I noticed a soft back tyre just a few miles later and wondered if that may have contributed.  I will never know.   Just a few bruises, a bit of a scrape on the hip and shoulder, and a few scratches on the bike.  I'm hobbling around a bit now, trying to pretend that it’s just normal after a ride!
    I read somewhere it’s an offence (or is that offensive?) to post pictures of body parts to members of a club so here is one.  Shame about me saddle!  I thought I heard Neil say he didn't like his so he would do me a swap.  I don’t need to worry about scratching it by leaning it on a wall now.
