    Top of mountain, regaining breath and composure, leaning against fence with right foot still
    clipped. I decide to move to the shade. I push off from fence, front wheel hits rock, pushes bike
    left, my weight ends up right, I fall over. I roll as I land, and get up totally unscathed.

    I later get home, I open the belt-bag I'd had on my side, and remove my GPS unit. It now has a
    really pretty rainbow coloured LCD screen where it was once just black and grey, and it has this
    really lovely spider web pattern on the glass in front of the rainbow coloured patch in the middle
    of the LCD.

    I'm SO GLAD I added the unit to my "Personal Effects" insurance. Now to wait for business hours to
    see what this geocaching expedition on bike is going to end up costing.

    Bugger!

    I bet that a lensatic compass and map would not have broken.

    Hell fire dude - you sure you're made the right choice of activities? Maybe you should get out of
    MTB'ing, and take up 'xtreme bubble wrapping' or summink.

    I know about that, but that's not what I was on about. Reckon he'd still manage to hurt himself/cost
    himself/break something.

    I'd love to have a go meself like - looks like top fun. Wonder if you could

    Shaun aRe - earlier typo corrected.
