I fell off my bike today
I am ok - really I am ok, but my confidence is shaken and my cockiness gone. It was just a thing where my wheel caught the curb at the wrong angle and me and bike fell sideways, onto Cleveland St. Thankfully no traffic and I got up real quick and moved back onto the sidewalk. Then on moving foward again the chain came off and twisted onto itself, a common problem I hear, I turned the bike over - well away from road, on the footpath- and untangled the chain with the help of a passerby, whom was really helpful thanks so much whomever you were. He made sure the bike and I were was working before I rode off.
I then had the most of the ride left to go, which I did manage, slowly and carefully.
Sydney park is really cool with the great big brick stacks..
And although Monday's are normally a dry night tonight I had a 3 fingered whiskey when I got home..
I am still riding to work at 6 in the morning - wish me luck.
