Re: Daily Chit Chat
I had a near death experience the other week. I was riding my bike home from a friends house. he lives at the top of the hill, so naturally I went as fast as possible down it (who wouldn't). I came to a roundabout and saw a car coming. So I slammed the back breaks. I began skidding, and at the speed I was going at I wasn't slowing down fast enough to avoid the car. Due to my quick thinking and instinct (and the fact I panicked) I flicked the back of my bike out, causing it to fall over, and my fall off and roll away from the road. I got up without a single mark, put the chain on my bike and continued.
Moral of the story: learn to bail!
