This is a question Schadenfreude

There's nothing like administering first aid to cyclist who has just spanged into the back of a milk float when you have tears of laughter running down your face. The world is just one long episode of You've Been Framed - when have you laughed at the misfortune of others?

few years ago me and the then Msr. Dchurch were having a bad time of things - everything that could go wrong seemed to happen to us.
Anyway, we got over the worst of it (hospital visits, houses falling through, boilers bursting etc...) and decided to go away for the weekend to cheer ourselves up.
We decided upon the New Forest, simply because it was only a couple of hours away and we'd bothe been camping there as children. One fine sunny day, we decided to go cycling. We hadn't bought any bikes with us so we had to hire them.

When we got to the cycle hire place they had a couple of tandems for rent. We looked at each other and simulatanously thought "That looks like fun.", so we hired a tandem.
It was a little tricky at first, but we soon got the hang of it - the main problem was keeping in time with each other. After about 5 miles we came across a sty (sp), and we decided to stop and rest before carrying the tandem over the sty and carrying on.

As we sat on the adjoining fence having a drink, another couple came along, one seperate bikes. We got chatting to them, and it became apparent that they had hired bikes from the same place.
"We thought about getting a tandem," they said, "but we didn't think we'd be able to balance, so we opted for seperate bikes each".
"No," says I, "the balance part is no problem at all, in fact it's reall easy. Anyway, we'd better be off now."

The then Mrs D and I get on the tandem, both put a foot each on our respective pedals, and......weeeeeee.....flat on our sides in mud.

The couple who were there could be heard cycling away at speed whilst barely able to keep balance from pissing themselves so hard.*


* I'd have done the same.

unless you carried your tandem over a small structure housing pigs,
i suspect the word you want is "stile".

this is a free service.
you're welcome.
