Just another day training on my bicycle, but this day would be different. I managed to crash during lap four of eight during my lunch time ride- http://twitpic.com/tiqru. It’s a simple U-turn, I do it five to six days a week. Mostly I broke the fall with my shoulder and head. Thank God for helmets. Luckily I was only going 8-12 mph. I was in the market for a new helmet anyway 🙂
After I managed to get upright, straighten by brake lever, and ensure that I had all of my pieces, I started riding back home. It turns out my front tire was going flat. Once home I found that there was a small shard of glass in the tire. That may have been my downfall. Tire replaced (with kevlar) and tube repaired. I shall try again tomorrow.
