I had a similar situation on my road bike on a lane, bombing down hill.
Sacary ass sh*t to be honest, had visions of all those tour crashes where the hard braking is then followed by some wobbling and then a perfect somersault over the edge!
Brake. Pray. Find somewhere safe to land if needs be. Collect it and stop in time. Laugh like an idiot for 15 seconds while the adrenaline pumps. Get yourself together and realise how luck you are. Ride home more carefully.
Somerset, like 'Heartbeat' with newer cars!
