I was warned by everyone. Many on this forum as well as the people at my lbs. Sooner or later riding with clipless pedels I would take a fall.
Yesterday it finally happened. After 2 plus months of riding with Look clipless pedals I fell over. I was stopping for a water break at a little gas/convenience center. I slowed down, unclipped from my right pedal, coasted over to an area at the edge of the property near some trees and leaned over to the right stopping perfectly on my right foot.
At this point for reasons I will never know, I pushed down with my right foot and threw my balance over to the left side. Of course my left foot was still locked into the pedal. Over I went just as easy as you please.
I did remember what my lbs had told me about not trying to break my fall with my left hand, (they say many break their wrists this way) but rather just roll the shoulder and take the fall on your upper arm and shoulder.
The result wasn't anything bad, I had to laugh at myself, plus I provided entertainment to the patrons including a couple of yahoos in a pick-up truck blaring country music.
So now that monkey is off my back. I suppose now people will begin telling me it will happen again! and again!
