Well today I proved that I cannot learn from the experiences of others. Hopefully I will learn from todayís commute. I was on my usual 9 mile commute when I managed to hit full on with my from tire a 3 inch diameter rock while going a little over 20 mph.
Then in an example of shear stupidity I tried to turn off the road. No front tire pressure. Tire slips sideways.
Worse crash Iíve had in 3 years (when my tire got caught in a railroad track and I broke my elbow).
So I pick myself up. Draged all my gear to the nearest sidewalk. Replaced the inner tube. (while pumping up the tire find pain in my right arm, hope nothing is broken). Put chain back on. Adjusted handlebar and seat back into position. Continue ride to work.
Got to work 20 min late.
Rough morning, but it still beats driving into work.
