I found out today that my shoulder does not make a good impact zone, not quite sure exactly what happen but I was hammering down a steep bridle path when I thought if I fall off at this speed it is going to hurt, so to prove my point I fell off
Right shoulder, thigh and knee took the brunt of the impact, fortunately the undergrowth was quite soft which I assumed helped. Funny thing was I carried on riding without to much of a problem (I was about 13 miles in to a 26 mile route). It was when I got back to the car and realised I could not lift the bike onto the roof of the car I realised there was a problem, fortunately I broke the bike down and put it in the back of the car.
Now sat hear nursing a very sore shoulder which I can move slowly but not above my head or put any weight into the shoulder
