I join (feebly, and with dishonour) Neil's club of bleeding MTB riders
That'll learn me to showboat! Neil would indeed be proud, nice gouge in thigh from pedal I think, no damage to knicks, save for a bit of blood staining (rinsed out now, all good ...). It's only superficial damage, not enough to warrant a bit of Mefix, but it does sure sting in the shower.
I did get up the steep hill that I normally have to bail out and walk up though, and recovered from overcooking it into a tight corner with a bit of front wheel sliding(w00t!), so it wasn't a disaster of a ride.
I ordered one of these today, for winter night MTB fangs. It'll be just like the old days with the old rally car, but cheaper and colder. Mmmm, cross-training ...
