Canal perils

I met a man last night who had recently fallen into the Coventry canal. He was cycling along the towpath when a swan startled him, causing him to veer and knock his helmeted head on the side of a bridge. This caused him and his bicycle to career into the canal.

Luckily he was wearing special clothing – he had normal clothes at his workplace.

I've long thought that the canal towpaths in Coventry and Warwickshire were too narrow for proper cycle tracks.
