Well if he didn't see that coming  :110:

Joking apart he did well to keep the bike upright, some shock he must have had.

Glad to see he was OK, though he had me worried when it appeared that first his legs had fallen off and then one his arms :005:

Seriously though it just goes to show once again that you cannot anticipate everything that might happen!

Timing is everything, two or three seconds later and this guy would have been sprouting wings.

What an escape - and how well he did to stay on his bike!  :020:

(And I thought having a wardrobe fall from a top floor window right behind me was unusual........it was in Hotwells road Bristol) :138:
