Abingdon is a historic town in Oxfordshire, situated on the banks of the River Thames, where a Dragon Boats Day is held every September. There is also a relatively new Cycling Festival which happens in April. There’s a Morris Dancing event held in the Saturday closest to the summer solstice, Bun-Throwing which is a four-hundred-year-old event, and many other unique festivals. However, the Bun-Throwing event only takes place when there is a royal occasion to celebrate. The Abingdon town councillors, wearing their full ceremonial robes, climb to the top of the County Hall and throw about 4,000 currant buns down on the general public. There’s a Michaelmas Fair and the Runaway Fair both held close together in October, as well as Swan Upping when swans on the upper reaches of the Thames are given a health check-up.

Unfortunately motorists are notoriously negligent of cyclists. They or their passengers could easily knock a cyclist off his or her bike, when they get out of cars without checking for cyclists. Many cyclists have been injured because of such careless actions. Even when wearing protective gear, serious injuries can occur, especially if a cyclist is lying on the road and traffic can’t stop in time to prevent further injury to the person.
Cyclists may also get their front wheel lodged in a pothole, if a road is badly maintained, and this can also cause serious injuries. If this happens to you, then you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim against the local council, not only for the pain, distress and suffering caused by the injuries, but also for damage to your personal property (bike, clothes and mobile phone, for example).
