It is said: "There are two kinds of cyclists. Those who have fallen and those who have not fallen...yet."
Today I joined the ranks of those who have fallen. My elbow is messed up and I just noticed the bruise and scrape on my shoulder. There is also a scrape and bruise on my knee (all on the left side).
My bike: the handlebars are twisted a little bit. In the fall the chain came off and that's the bright side!
I am getting more mechanically independent. I put the thing back on by myself.
I am very glad that nobody was around to see me. Especially the part where I got my shoe lace wrapped around the brake lever and was laying face down on the bridge, not able to get loose from my bike...
