So yesterday I fell for the first time on my afternoon commute. It was not bad and I was in a residential area when it happened so only two people saw me one was another rider I was riding with and the other one was a rider that was just going by and I am sure he got a good laugh.
The other rider I was riding with made a stop and I was in front of him. I started to come to a stop and unclipped my left foot and was ready to put my foot down when I decided I will turn around but when I looked the other biker was right there and I had to stop and my balance of course switched to my right side and down I went.
No big deal I was able to catch myself with my right arm and then get up quickly. I knocked the cap off my bars and made a small mark on my tape and small scracth on my knee.
The rider I was riding with has fallen before and as he was watching and he said "finally you fall" Then after I got up and was moving around he asked if I was ok.
Well at least I was not at a stop light in a left turn lane in a busy intersection that would have been really embarassing.
