Wounded pride

By reeset / On / In Cycling

So this is downright embarrassing.  For the second time in about a month, I’ve basically just tipped over on my bike and fallen off.  The first time it happened, I had gotten cut off and couldn’t get my feet out of my cleats fast enough to keep from falling.  That was less embarrassing since it wasn’t completely my fault — though the blood stains on my shoes from my fall mocks me still.

Today, I was coming into work and while coasting, started fishing around in a pocket for my keys.  Well, it was wet and I wasn’t paying attention and missed the ridge where the road and loading dock at the library come together…and off I went.  For someone that rides as often as I do, you’d think I’d be spending more time on my bike and less time on the ground.  🙂
