    This year was my first and I very much enjoyed it despite the lack of training and preparation - though I am glad I got a decent pair of bib shorts and a full service before hand.

    I ended up doing most of the route by myself, which was empowering, but I reckon the social aspect is key, and I would have struggled to repair a puncture myself in the dark. Will definitely form a posse if I am doing for it 2019, and probably have a less ambitious Saturday before the event.

    Been meaning to do this for a long time but this year I've actually committed. Now I just need to get my bicycle in order in time as my saddle is not very comfy.

    Unfortunately the only Islington council owned cameras around there are on the Newington Green or Balls Pond Rd ends of Mildmay Park whilst my accident appears to be have been somewhere in between

    Was going north bound towards Stoke Newington Church St but accordingly to Strava only made it up to the junction with Mildmay Grove South https://www.strava.com/activities/151907­9320

    According to Hackney Peddler the rear of the frame is too displaced. The rest of the bicycle is fine so I am hoping I am just get a replacement to the frame and turn it into a beater.

    Thanks folks. Even if I don't find out what happened I am counting my blessings and being thankful for being alive and without a brain injury. It is a shame about the frame but it has been through its fair share of crashes.

    I don't know if this counts as a minor accident as I have no recollection of it but on Thursday night I was cycling home from work drinks and next thing I know I was getting into an ambulance on what I believe was Mildmay Park, perhaps near the junction of Mildmay Grove South if I can trust my GPS data.

    I am mostly fine now but it was pretty scary being told I had multiple fractures to my skull and bleeding on the brain. Definitely going to wear a helmet during my commute after that. My bicycle is a different story, was told by the shop that the frame is a write off. I can only guess that with the forces involved I may have been in a hit and run. Have filled a police report with the little I know and hoping that the police contact Islington Council for some CCTV.
