    My first wipe out!!!

    i hit a state park with a friend of mine here in syracuse, ny. I was going down a steep hill with a jagged road. Next thing i know, i flew over my handlebars. Luckily for me my spd pedals unhooked themselves (THANK YOU SHIMANO!!! I LOVE YOU!!! I HATE YOU NASHBAR). I quickly turned my body so i would land on my arms. Next thing i know, im lying in the tall grass lands. And after that i yelled WOOOOHOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DAMN IT WAS FUN!!!!

    A few weeks ago I went riding and realized I hadn't biffed in along time. So I started riding as fast as I could and took my hands off the brakes a switchback later I was on the ground oozing blood with a cloud of dust surrounding me.
    Booyah!!

    I'm very impressed! I've never hit a park (state, provincial or otherwise) but I did crash into a nasty rose bush once.

    Onward to bigger things...think NATIONAL PARK!

    Prepare for the worst - that way any surprise will be a pleasant one.

    I took a glancing blow from a shrubbery once, but no wipe out.
