it heals up quickly. Not the best place, especially for cycling.

I read somewhere orienteering rated second behind rugby for frequency of sporting injuries, though it probably leads on the exotic and unusual ones. I once tried forcibly inserting a sapling into my brain, jumping off an eight foot wall at Long Valley. I slammed down upright with bending knees as planned, except I was perfectly aligned on a stout sapling that stopped short and I only suffered a nose bleed.

Many close calls over the years but this was right up there.
I managed to turn the legs over this evening though:-)

Ouch, sorry I could not see you out there. I wondered what happened so you just presented stuff as I did not have the time to check Attackpoint before.

Risky stuff this, after spending the last year recovering from various leg (toe) injuries repeatedly, before next weekend's London Marathon I mostly chose routes going around on roads and being careful in terrain precisely to avoid something like what you just suffered.

Wishing you a speedy recovery!

Thanks Peter and well done at the weekend.
Maybe Trail O is the way ahead:-)
have a good London and enjoy the atmosphere as it is very special and quite emotional when you have a moment to take it all in.
