A rare thing today, but nevertheless I did it, I dropped my bike. Very low speed stuff and nobody hurt but pride and shifter both dented.

Minor scrapes to my lycra and my shifter but not a mark on my body, fortunately, for it simply would not do to be seen by my public in a distressed state.  

As for the Roly Polys, didn't they go into terminal decline on the death of Les Dawson?

I trust there was no damage to your revered self MtB? But how apposite that an athlete such as yourself maintained a Swan like grace throughout the whole ghastly experience. Whenever I go down, it's like the fabulous Roly Polys hitting the deck! BTW, whatever happened to them....

You should have seen me Dave, the road was only wet and the bend was only slight but I looked like a swan on ice as I slalomed my way along.  Eventually, and despite my heroic efforts, the whole pantomime collapsed into farce and down I went.  Most embarrassing for a finely tuned athlete such as myself.

I feel your pain MtB. I'm always dropping things. They don't call me Good Time Gladys for nothing you know....
