Classic Cycling Quotes #37

How obssessive are road cyclists? Well this paints a pretty good picture. Yesterday am whilst commuting to work in the rain, a mate of mine, who I was only riding with last Sunday down to La Parouse, was taken out by a car. They pulled out on him, hit his rear wheel, destroyed his bike and sent him flying. He landed hard and broke his back (T12). Right now the poor – but also lucky from all reports – bastard is lying in Concord Hospital facing at least 8 weeks in a back brace. But….after a pretty epic brush with his own mortality yesterday, he still finds the time to post this comment on Strava last night:

“I did manage to get about 40km in before the accident.”

You legend.
