Is there a Club Tombay jersey? If so, I'd like a women's medium.
Yep, on her first clipless day, Yen has already taken a fall.
I practiced at the shop and quickly got the hang of it. I know, learning on a trainer is not the same as riding in the street.
So I thought I'd go out this evening after dinner settled and just ride back and forth on our street to get the rhythm. Slow, unclip, stop. Slow, unclip, stop. Slow, unclip, stop. No problem!
Suddenly a stupid thought crossed my mind and I slowed down to share it with Hubby who was standing on the curb watching me ride. WHAM!! I forgot the "unclip" part of the rhythm. I went down hard to the left, landing on my left knee which is scratched and bruised, I have a large diagonal bruise across my right shin(????), and my left ankle has a twinge of something. On the bike, there are some light brush-mark scratches on the top of the left brifter, which was also shoved toward the middle of the bars.
Hubby came running... "Oh Sweetie!!!". He looked over the bike and fixed the brifter.
But hey, I'm a kid again! So I got up, brushed myself off, laughed out loud, looked over the bike, and rode around a bit more.
I never imagined that 52 would feel this young.
On a more serious note..... since I fell to the left, I'm VERY thankful a car wasn't passing at that very moment.
Not sure I'm ready to join the group ride in the morning..... I'll have to pay extra attention to my pedaling rather than socializing.
