    Wife Finally Get's It

    Riding to work earlier this week caught a rut, bike went down and left, I went up and right then down. Some bumps and bruises, dented helmut and sore back. Arrived home and explained why I looked the way I did and my lovely spouse responded with "is the bike OK?" Spoken like a true cyclist spouse.

    My Road ID dog tag has all the usual numbers and info. The last line on the tag is, "Is my bike OK?"

    Last year after a crash, my first question was, "Is the bike OK?", second question, "Is my helmet cracked?". The answer was yes to both.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    My road ID tag has all the usual phone #'s and contacts, MY last line on it is "Save my bike".
    Had to throw my 2 cents in as well.

    Yes, bike is Ok, thanks. Don't need another helmut, I'll just use another newer one in the garage. Funny, I don't remember hitting my head, just the thought that the landing was probably going to hurt, it did.
