I had a crash last night, cross winds and badly retro-fitted man hole covers make a bad combination for a little person like me!
I was pretty dazed and now have some nice grazes, bruises and sore muscles, but hey, my bike is fine! No buckled wheels, the brake is still good, handlebars and seat still pointing the right way…I need a new helmet though - visible impact site on the shell and 3 nice sized cracks visible in the foam surrounding the impact site. Oh and I had only just re-adjusted my helmet about 10 minutes prior to crashing.
Thank goodness my husband was with me at the time and helped get me and the bike off the road (and there were no cars around at that point). A woman saw it happen from her front yard so she fetched me some ice for my head and nice cold water to sip.
I feel lucky but sore today. Be safe out there!
