A former head teacher said he feels lucky to be alive after being knocked off his bike.

The man was hit by a car while cycling along Bretford Road and remembers little of the accident.“I turned onto the main road and thought ‘great, it’s clear’ and the next thing I knew was something hit me from behind and then I was waking up in hospital.

“I should have been killed or my head should have been cut open; in fact it’s amazing I’m here talking to you about it.

“I’m told I was unconscious for about three hours and then when I did come to I wasn’t in a great state. There was, I understand, some concern about me for a while.

“But I’ve got no broken bones, just some cuts and bruises and my head has a permanent ache.

“I’m told it will be about two weeks before that begins to fade. In the meantime I’ve been told to take complete rest.”

“Accidents like this happen once in a million miles and I’ve been reassured I was doing nothing wrong so I think I’ll be happy to continue cycling although I’ll need a new bike first.”
