“He was pedaling, with the electric motor on, when the wheel suddenly came from below him after hitting a patch of wet dirt.
“He slipped and flew over the handlebars into the middle of the road.
“Stupid, Simon wasn’t wearing a helmet, and blood was pouring out of his face – he looked like something out of the Phantom of the Opera.
“Three kind-hearted passersby jumped into action and stopped the car so he wouldn’t be run over.
“After being rushed to the hospital and having an X-ray, Simon was finally released that night – his arm was in a yellow cast up to his shoulder – and asked to rest.
“Although this is his second great escape, Simon insists he’s not ditching his bike – but he’s going to start wearing a helmet.”
