My only wipeout on a bike was in San Diego with my brother - we were riding a night in some of the MTB trails - lots of fun. Anyway, as we were coming back, I was coming down a section and a shot rang out - or at least that is what is sounded like...
My brother was quickly trying to come up with an explaination of how he managed to get me shot. However, it was just a rock had slit the side of the tire completely open.
I went down, but managed to ease myself a little bit on my golve - but my right legged was pretty well scrapped up.
I survived - which was the important thing. Some duct tape and a new tube, and we were able to ride the rest of the way home.
