    Bad shots are nothing compared to having 5 stitches on ur chin and bearing the excruciating pain whilst seeing ur blood drip like a leaky faucet.

    Actually what I did was as follows..

    1) I kept the camera facing sideway
    2) As I cycle, I press down the shutter (burst mode)

    Unfortunately it didn't give me the effect I wanted

    Haha, and lastly, I did fall once.. but that was when I was talking to an old friend from primary school (She was gorgeous nowadays haha...)

    1-handed cycling... I tend to do less of that after my last big fall which landed me in hospital during NS... except when my face's itchy whilst cycling...

    Oh dear.. that must have sucked.

    I can do 1-hand cyling with my right hand, but not with my left. Strange, since I am left-hander..

    =) skinnylatte : was the injuries very serious?

    anyway if wanna take pictures, i've a way but it won't turn out perfectly fine. if you wanna take certain location shots, it's even harder.

    answer : freehands off the handlebars.

    have some practice and i've some very bad accidents myself as i'm a biker. some almost fatal anyway lol. good luck and protect the camera =x
    I Love You :)

    Serious? Haha. It was OK. I had 4 stitches. However, from all the time between the crash (in Pulau Ubin) and going to the ER in NUH (very far away, but I wanted to go there coz my parents work there), I was semi conscious and almost delirious. For a few weeks after that I kept getting nightmares, and everytime I walked near a road I could "see" cars crashing into me. All very morbid stuff. Thankfully my friend kept her cool and got me out of pulau ubin and to a hospital far away in the west, all by herself.

    Sandman77: Um yeah. kinda. I think I was using my Canon 350D at the point of the crash, though it might have been my rangefinder too. I don't remember anything since then.. hhaha.

    Haven't done that.

    But I have cycled and eat a bag of chips, 3 pieces of KFC, a piece of banana cake, a bar of chocolate and drank a can of coke.

    Must be very hungry.

    Hi did that a couple of times, but only with a P&S, as easier to snatch a quick glance at the screen, looking through an eye-piece of an SLR I think is suicide.

    Here is one I took while in Australia.

    Be safe.
