the strangulation night ride

got a txt halfway through the day about a ride in the evening, i’d ridden to and from work but was definitely up for some MTB action. Ian lost his glasses on the last night ride, so we retraced that route backwards in the vain hope of finding them, it was whilst climbing away from the canal on the over tunnel route my helmet got caught on a branch hanging vertically down and it ripped the helmet clean off the back of my head with the strap still around my throat. good job i was going uphill, downhill at this point would have meant me going quite fast and i don’t like to think what the consequences of that might have been!
sadly we didn’t find the missing specs but we had a great ride under completely clear skies
