A while ago I took my bike, put one pedal straight down, and then leaned the bike over to where the pedal was hitting the ground. Looking at the degree to which the bike was leaned over, I sort of chuckled and said to myself, "Dave, there's no way you'll ever suffer from pedal strike. If you're over that far, you're falling already."
I recently decided that I needed to have more confidence in my ability on the bike and be more aggressive in certain things, like in cornering. As such, I've been working on taking corners faster and banking more where appropriate. This is what I was doing this morning on my way to work, when I made a quick, sharp right turn from an access road into a parking lot. In the middle of the turn, I heard/felt this little tic, as some part of my Eggbeater gave the concrete a peck on the cheek. Didn't break my momentum or cause me any danger - it was about as light as I can imagine pedal strike to be.
Still, it struck. Never thought it would happen, but it did. Interesting.
