Was cutting back across town on the MUP, and up ahead, snow and ice on the path. Rather than taking it easy I decided to power through it. No good, caught a rut with the front tire, was tossed over the handlebars and down an embankment. Luckily I landed on and slid down snow. Old crusty snow though, I did walk(ride) away with only a bunch of cuts on my elbows from the snow. Great fun, at least nobody was around to witness the stupidity.
