I crashed today for the first time on the road (fell off mountain biking a few times) I got cut off and tried to jump a really low curb. The front caught sideways and I landed on the sidewalk. I didn't slide far just sort of stuck on the concrete. I have some major road rash on my leg and a hole in my knee I guess from a rock. I think it's just pain, but man I'm getting too old to fall. The point of my post (beside hoping for some sympathy) Is WEAR A HELMET, my head swung forward and hit with amazing force as I attempted to roll. I would have had much worse injuries without my helmet. Well time for an Advil.
