I'm riding along and this must have happened at around 20mph, I'd just looked at my computer and it was reading a fraction over that (and I think it under-reads slightly). I'm in the road and going past a parked car when a kid on a bike suddenly appears. He's ridden into the road on his bike and given me around three feet to notice he's there, put on my brakes and get out of his way. Obviously that can't be done and I crashed into him, hitting his front wheel. He went to ground, I stumbled and then joined him on the deck. As I stood up I could hear a car coming so with me going "are you ok? Are you ok?" I put my hands under his armpits and scooped him up. I checked him over and he was fine. A small white mark on his left elbow. As the children he was with (I think one was his older sister) repeatedly said to him "that's why you don't go into the road" I insisted he went inside to get the once over from his mum. On the way back home I went around that area again to see if he was ok. I saw his sister (I assume) and asked her. As she tried to get rid of me (strange man on bike, go away, go away! :mrgreen: ) she said he was fine. I looked over to the other side of the road to see him climbing on a cars bonnet. He was fine then... Two things I'm grateful of. The first is that I was on my new bike as my old one has almost no brakes when you first put them on and is a lot heavier. The second being that I wasn't a car or a motorbike. He could have had serious problems if I was. Even if I'd had landed on him he would have been in trouble. Actually, three things I'm grateful of. The last being that my radio turned itself off from the impact, not because it was broken. :mrgreen: So, please, make sure your kids wear helmets and know not to wander off into the road. Especially not from behind parked cars!
