The riding gods may have been looking the other way then, I had a lucky escape on Sunday. Approaching a bend on a descent I spotted some mud and some gravel, and in trying to avoid one and not lean over so hard I went down I went off the edge of the road onto gravel. At that point I thought I was about to get more intimately acquainted with the hedge at the roadside than I really wanted, but managed to lean enough to get back on the road.
That wasn't the best time for my back wheel to hit another patch of gravel and squirm wildly. I'm still not entirely sure how I kept the bike upright, but went from expecting my first ever dose of road rash to freewheeling away thankful.
