Finished my spinning class this afternoon and on my bike ride back home 25+ mph through traffic.. Suburban stopped about 10 feet in front of me and I hit the brakes and skid until I hit the back of Surburban. No broken bones, well, it's a little too early to tell since my thumb is swelling as I'm typing but lots of bruises and scratches. Wife thinks I'm an idiot for going so fast.. I actually agree with her this time.. Everything is fine.. just need to tell someone about it.
The only damage to the bike is the handlebars, broke into pieces..

Be careful out there. Get your hand checked out.

Glad you're mostly ok! It's times like these I'm glad I can't ride that fast :)

Hope you're okay. I actually don't think it's the speed, but more of the shock of something you were not prepared for. I think the same thing would have happened at 20 mph.

I almost endo'ed myself yesterday on my commute home... Be careful out there.

Too bad the bike doesn't have anti-lock brakes, huh? :)
