100% crash record

Me and Steve headed out on St. Stephen’s Day with our mountain bikes. We headed for Breahig and found the roads unpassable.

St Stephen's Day Ice


Steve fell off not far from where the picture was taken above near Breahig, his back wheel giving way to the ice.

We didn’t know whether to laugh or cry but decided to head back towards Currow. Some very wise person decided to head up the Metal Bridge and back to Currow by the top road where I fell off, this time with my front wheel sliding and bring me down to the ground spread out like a starfish. Next time a warning from the good people at Met Eireann will be adhered to!
