Took a Spill Today

Stepped on a paint stripe on a handicapped ramp in front of 7-11. Went head over heels, landed on my butt and spilled my Big Gulp. I've never seen my friends laugh that hard before.

The good part is that the group split just before we stopped so there were only 6 witnesses instead of 15.

The bike was keeping its distance from me, safely leaning on a curb about 15' away.

You know you're spending too much time on the bike when you've forgotten how to walk.
