So I was riding my bike around my area doing my normal route. I happened to be riding on the sidewalk next to the mall. About to approach one of those things where the side walk stops for cars to pull out onto the main road. So I see a car in the turn lane possibly going to turn onto the main road and then there was a car behind it. Well I go behind the car and hop onto the sidewalk and throughout this process I have to make a split second decision to make a hard left to continue the side walk or turn right and go into dirt/bushes/rocks. Well I couldn't make my mind up fast enough and just went into the crosswalk pole. Well..my bike did because the pedal/cranks and part of the handle bar did since I was trying to avoid it. It went pretty smoothly because I didnt fall I just walked it off. However, this all happened right in front of a car full of people. Embarrassing.
