4×4 vs bike

I just conducted an interesting experiment.

The idea popped into my head as I rode to meet a friend after work – who would win in a collision between a 4×4 all-terrain off-road vehicle and my bike?

Well, today must have been my lucky day.

For no sooner had I imagined this intriguing scenario when a Mercedes GL-Class 4×4 (price – £57,529) ploughed into Everton, my clapped out bicycle (price – £50), sending me hurtling through time and space, and rendering Everton, and my knees, utterly useless.

I have had four beers now to counter the pain spreading through my body but it’s growing in intensity. Updates to follow.

    Whilst hoping it doesn’t hurt too much and no permanent damage has been done (especially to your blogger fingers) what I hope even more is that the bastard driving that monstrosity has something really horrible happen to him or her. If you haven’t done it already.

    Thanks Paul. Nothing is broken thankfully. My knee is pretty bust up aand I woke up this morning with random bruising on my arms and legs but overall I think I was pretty lucky!

    The couple were German. Weren’t used to the bike lanes I guess. They were pretty shook up by it. The guy went into shock and couldn’t speak for a while.

    Bell me later if you fancy a beer.
