Good evening, folks. I've visited here periodically and have enjoyed you all immensely. But now I have an issue and hope you all have some insights. Monday I was cruising along a road just blocks from the house, maybe 16 - 17 mph. It was about 8 a.m., sunny, dry, no traffic, paved road, no obstacles, no gravel, no nuttin. Then, WHAM, I'm eating asphalt! Result: 18 stitches in the face and a screw inserted (tomorrow morning) in a wrist bone. I never lost consciousness.
I cannot figure out what caused the crash, and that has me worried. One possible explanation: the front tire was flat after I righted the bike. Could it have blown out? Have any of you had an experience of this nature and/or any ideas about what might have caused it?
Like most of you, I learn from my mistakes (and this wasn't my first fall), but if I can't determine what or how, I can't learn and may repeat the same mistake (shudder). Thanks for your comments.
