Close call on EoH downtrack

Postby MichaelB » Fri Mar 18, 2011 9:13 am

Rode up the tracvk with no probs last night (except the headwind near the top :roll: ), and started the descent same as many time before.

It was strating to get dark by this time (about 7:40pm), and had my Magicshine on as well.

Now, I've ridden down there many times before, and in the pitch black, but tonight, with a small lapse in concentartion , almost dumped it at speed.

It was on the RH bend above the last hairpin (Devils Elbow) where there is a bitumen join line that follows the road curve . Managed to get the front wheel caught and it really gave the handlebars a solid shake (enough to give me a sore shoulder), but somehow, I managed to correct it and keep going. :shock:

So, now that darkness is descending for after work rides, be careful !!
