Wait a second. You did have both hands on the handlebar, correct? If so, maybe you twitched a little?

Anyway, I assume there's no damage to you or the bike because it happened too fast for you to react.

The body does weird things sometimes. I remember once I was walking along and all of a sudden one leg was, like, not there at all. I fell flat on the ground, thinking OMG I've got some kind of fatal nerve disease... freaked me out, you know? I can still remember it clear as day 30 years later. But it hasn't happened again, so I guess I'm in the clear.
