    crashed yesterday evening. was riding up to a meeting at the college, and the path by the docks is atrocious.

    There are left over train lines from the docks (despite this side of the cargo train line having been decomissioned for over 25 years and the rails from the station being removed).

    I somehow managed to catch my back wheel in one, and end up being put on my arse. Worse, I ended up being ducked in a very large puddle which when I hit the ground.

    it must have been fairly spectacular as two lads in hoodies looked visibly shocked, asked if I was OK and even rescued the lens of my rear light bar on my rack – this is totally fucked, and they are hard to get in England, I will have to get a new one imported from NL or DE…

    Thankfullly me and the rest of my bike are OK (other than the chain being dumped off the ring which is a hassle to get back on with a chainguard) – I am only slightly bruised and scraped. I managed to waddle to my meeting at the college and all the cyclists there gave me some sympathy as nearly everyone has gone over on these train lines at one point, yet no one will remove them as apparently they still belong to Network rail who will ask for money if they are moved :rant;

    actually it now looks like I might be able to salvage the rear light, thanks to the lad rescuing the lens (should I meet him again I will certainly buy him a beer). I thought the pillars to the lens mountings had sheared off and the electronics were drowned but they seem to have started working again, and the lens mount may be OK raaa

    At least this is the second of my two e-bikes, the slower and less powerful one which I tend to use at night/going to the pub (I bought it a few years ago when I was stillsceptical of the concept of them) so I can still ride to work and back on my better one and not risk a stop check or even a £35 traffic ticket for having no rear light (the cops do actually do this round here now and then, especially out in the sticks but TBH I can’t blame them as its unsafe when there are no street lights!)

    feel like smashing my head against a brick wall in fear and frustraition. Hate the way I have lost my independence and find it so hard to cope on my own. Then again perhaps in a few days or even hours that will change. Hope so.

    In the mean time I will just embarace myself on here. joy.

    i wanna rant about supermarket chains sucking the independency out of St James st in Brighton. the occupation of the former Taj (independent grocer) building is now over. the fuckin courts won! we did have an amazing art exhibition tho, a free shop, free cafe, with a good library. a massive amount of awareness was raised regarding the supermarket chain, sainsbury, opening in the building. massive support from the local community too.. although there are always a few cunts ready too try an stop you.
