The Brick Wall and I

I once cycled as fast as I could… into a brick wall…

I must have been about 15, and “as fast as I could” was pretty bloody fast…

Especially since I was also cycling down hill…

And no – it wasn’t a mistake. I cycled directly towards the brick wall on purpose…

The mistake was attempting to repair the brakes on the bike myself… And then trying to do a huge burn-out…

What? Were you expecting a moral to the story? The friend that was watching found it all very funny “You went splat, and slid down the wall like in a cartoon” – I only remember having a very sore body, and having to repair a lot more than the brakes.

Ok Ok, a moral…

Brick walls are hard, and they hurt…
