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.
