Did a 30 mile gravel ride, first 15mi into a stiff 15mph wind, gusting 30mph. Wind chill was 29F. At one point I accidentally dialed 911! My iPhone was in a zipped pants pocket, and while trying to silence an incoming call, I tapped the on-off button several times. I was wearing heavy gloves...not easy to do...Then I heard that beeping countdown, and I knew what was happening. Stopped the bike and ripped out phone hoping to stop the process, but alas, it was too late...it was ringing 911. So I hung up! Then it occurred to me that that was the incorrect thing to do, so I called back, explained what had happened. The operator thanked me for calling back, and off I went.
