A CYCLIST has suffered “serious” injuries after coming off his bike this morning.

The man was travelling along Titchfield Hill near Fareham when he came off his bike shortly before 8am.

Police say no other vehicle was involved, and that the man has been rushed to Southampton General Hospital.

The accident means there are now long tailbacks along the A27 leading up to the M27.

Quite possibly caused by road defects or debris, hope the guy is ok though and hope the road gets checked for defects/debris.

I havent ridden the Titchfield end of the A27 for about 2 years... back then the road surface was fair. What I did find was lots of diesel all over the road when it got damp. Which as you know makes for an interesting ride around the roundabout...

Thankfully I've not had the... ahem... Pleasure, of hitting a patch of diesel in the wet yet but I certainly know what it's like, you could either have a total loss of traction and low side or you could have a breif loss of traction before the rear regains traction while sliding one side of the front wheel and violently snapping to the other while the bike gives you the ejector seat effect.

Aim it at Fareham Borough Council and who ever they contract the road works to.

Alternatively, we could wait for the facts and then comment, rather than have an entirely hypothetical conversation? Less entertaining I know, but something I would recommend in all these cases where otherwise one can only speculate.

Well, since the police already stated that no other vehicles were involved, that leaves 4 possibilities, least likely, is the cyclist was taken ill, next least likely, is a defect with the bike and tied at most likely, is something on the road or a defect with the road.
