It s a moment that we all dread and perhaps one that we have personally experienced. Walking on tiled floors with cleated road shoes can be a complete nightmare, looking like a goose waddling on an icy lake. If you do slip up while navigating a caf on a mid-ride break, you can only hope that no-one sees you do it. Unfortunately, for one unlucky caf visitor, not only was his slip caught on the premises CCTV camera and in front of all of the people in the caf , it was then recorded by JLT-Condor6 rider Jon Mould and then broadcast on social media.

Mould asked in his post on Twitter7: Is this the most embarrassing thing to happen in the caf ?

Thankfully, the rider involved named as Daniel Aled Davies is not carrying any hot drinks when he takes a spill. And no cake was harmed during the making of the film. He momentarily tangles with another customer and soon gets back up on his feet to find the relative safety of a table and chairs. Anyone who invents a lightweight slip-on super-grippy rubber sole for cleats that can be popped in a back pocket and then produced when needed at a caf stop will get our money on Kickstarter.
