    Damn plastic speedbumps!

    So I'm out on my new rush, enjoying the afternoon, tackling hills etc. when I decide to head behind this high school near where I live to get some water from the water fountains back there. As I was approaching, slowly, while backpedaling lightly to keep my speed under control I had to go over these thin yellow plastic speedbump things bolted to the concrete. One was loose. My front wheel somehow got sucked under the un-bolted corner and needless to say I endo-ed. Tore up my bar tape on both sides though the bike only landed on the left, which I find odd. Also scratched the top of the stem up and slightly tacoed the wheel. Its rubbing in two equidistant places, so I'm assuming its slightly tacoed anyway. Damn, second ride out and I'm already breaking this thing.

    Well at least only the varsity cheerleading squad saw me slam into the ground. God help my sense of self worth if anyone ELSE had seen it.
