Bike Crash

Had a hilarious stack yesterday.
Mick and I went for a cyle up the hill. We had only gone about 1/2 a k from the house when I had a blow out in my rear tube. So we quickly whipped off the wheel and changed the tube and put about 15 Psi in the tyre with the hand pump. Cycled up a small hill and then down to the servo to get some air. Went flying through an intersection and jumped an island and into the forecourt. Screamed up to the air section and went to put the bike into a big rear wheel slide. As I put my left foot down I grabbed a big handful of rear brake to discover there was none! So I grabbed front and went straight over the handlebars into the air pump!
I had forgotten to reattach the rear brakes when putting the rear tyre back on. Lucky there were no cars on the intersections!
