My shifters have been a bit fussy this morning and when I slammed the front into low ring (while heading uphill past an intersection) my chain came off. As my leather straps were pulled tight on the cage pedals I had to reach down to loosen one. Given that the overwhelming impulse at < 2mph is to spin spin spin trying to gain balance I realized it was kiss the pavement time. I took it on my right side so I could fall away from traffic.
A lady SUV driver and the garbage truck driver at the stop sign both got out of their cars to check on me - Oh the humiliation. I may have to put LOOK pedals on - at least I don't have to do a balance act while leaning over to reach LOOK pedals in order to unclip.
