Not to mention just toppling over while stopped because you think you've unclipped and try to put the other foot down.

Happens to everyone.

Maybe we could start a points scale in your honour - 'bp' index or something like that?!

1 point - stationary
2 Points - low speed
3 Points - high speed
1 Point - witnessed by 1 person
2 points - witnessed by more than 1 person
3 points - photographic evidence
1 point - in practice
2 points - during a race
3 points - showboating at the finish line
1 point - nobody else involved
2 points - wipe out other riders in the process
3 points - wipe out pedestrians/ innocent bystanders
1 point - scratches only
2 points - scratches and damaged gear
3 points - any break - bike or self

Any criteria that I missed? Artistic merit? Cause of crash etc?

(My best/worst is 9 points, and probably on about 100 over the years).

Trying to track stand outside Costa last summer. It went horribly wrong and I fell to the wrong side, and was tended to by an old lady...

To make bburn plodder feel better:  Note that I'm still clipped in - couldn't get out of them.

Crash’s caused by making rude gestures at car drivers anyone?


Not yet Cake

Falling off is easy!

Learning to fall off without scratching your pride and joy is an art
