Ouch! My Brompton fell on my foot

Yesterday just as I was getting ready to get off the tube train at Neasden the sudden jolt to the carriage sent the Brompton toppling onto my right foot. Although I was wearing thick tights I was wearing my new black Camper shoes which did not offer much protection so I had a sore foot for most of the day and today I can see a small blood blister. I was still able to cycle and in fact because I was sitting on a saddle it was less painful than walking.

Lesson. Pay more attention as I get off and on the train.

The bike is ok. It fell on something soft, my foot.

Wouldn't fancy it, 10+kg of solid steel. Glad to hear you can still cycle, perhaps it's time to model some Doc Martins for a while however ;)

I do have steely Docs but I don't usually wear them for cycling.

I have posted a selection of footwear here:

I am not sure if anyone can cycle in those Doc Martins. The cycle shoes look elegant and sound tough. Every summer I look out for sport sandals that I like. Not found the perfect pair for me yet.

Worse...didn't fasten front clamp properly yesterday. Set off and it collapsed and I went over front. because I was at folk festival in v cold evening weather had put ski socks under jeans and biker type ankle boots on, and I was in a field, less damage done than if in front of a bus! Poor shins!

Ouch ouch. Sounds as if you are in need of a deep bubble when you get home! Take care.
