Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. Went for an early morning ride yesterday and as I was turning from a road onto the MUP took the turn a little too fast. Swung wide, and realized I was headed for the edge. I couldn't decide whether to straighten up and ride into the grass or try to fight to make the turn - gravity and dew slicked grass made the decision for me. WHAM! Down hard on my right side. Fortunately my body saved the bike from any damage! Just a few scrapes and a bruised ego.
The rest of the ride couldn't have been more pleasant. Twice I was accompanied by flocks Goldfinches as I cruised along the road.
I give my blood for my sport!!!
