Not only screwed but scared also...I went to wally world and grabbed two new tubes and tires, mounted them and took them for a test drive 9:35 at night...Part way into the test run I figured Id ride back to where I got the flat and then back home so I could keep my miles up and not be cheating on the map my ride stats well one section of the commute is a small windy downhill that is totally devoid of street lights..I made it quickly through that section and pedled the slight upgrade that leads to a flat strip of road about 300 yards long when all of a sudden there is a huge crash in the trees next to me. Mind you it almost 10pm and there is zero light cept for my 1/2 watt Planet Bike Blaze.
I almost ****, came out the saddle and was peddeling like a mad man...My hair was on end and my entire body was tingling, I never looked back..Did end up hitting 24 mph on the flat which is a personal best....lol..I took another way back home..
