Pedal strike sucks.

Okay, I admit it.
I always thought pedal strike was kind of a non-issue.
Not a big enough worry to be concerned with.
Today on my way home, I leaned tight into a turn so I could turn around on a narrow residential street. As I came around in the right direction I felt my pedal catch on the ground, and I got thrown off. Unfortunately the bike was still connected to my opposite foot so I flew about ten feet and the bike came down on top of me. It's undamaged and, beyond a bit of road rash, so am I.
But now I have learned the dangers of pedal strike.
