Be careful on those corners

Tonight is the second time this year that I’ve come off my bicycle because of oily or icy roads.

It’s hard to see both and taking a corner a little too fast and a little too aggressively, will result in you losing traction and hitting the ground. I can tell you it hurts very much. So be careful out on the streets at the moment.

  1. Sorry to hear about the dive. Do you find you ever get out of the clip-ons? I dread the day I take a spill and stay stuck in the pedals :(.

  2. Ouch. I’ve just done the same thing today. Going past some cars, slipped on something and a car ran over my foot (not the driver’s fault, just how I fell). Luckily nothing seems broken – just gained a few cuts and bruises and a hole in my jeans. Did reinforce to me how vulnerable we are on the roads, though, even when cars are just crawling along in traffic.
