Another first today. My first bike wreck. The weather was so pretty we decided to get our bikes out for a spin.
I had been over 3.5 miles and just got too close to the curb and panicked. Luckily I fell on grass and not asphalt. The bike is fine, can’t even find a scratch on it. I am a little sore and have a few bruises, but nothing major.
I didn’t get back on the bike immediately because I was a little dizzy and unstable when I first got up. I walked the bike a bit, then rode another half mile before calling it a day.
And yes, I was wearing a helmet. We never ride without them.
I am now 4 miles away from 450 miles for 2011. Woohoo!!!
