Wipe out
Cycling: I hit the pavement while riding my bike earlier this afternoon. I personally would like to blame the gravitational shift caused by the asteroid, or maybe Mt. St Helenes' potential eruption, but I was just not paying attention to what I was doing. And no, there were no girls involved. I was going up the Harris park hill like I have done dozens of times before and had to shift from the outside of the curve where the grade is easier to the other side to avoid a car comeing down fast. I turned the handle bars a touch to the right, and then when the car passed me and was around the turn, I then had the brilliant idea to change to an easier gear.

Well, with already sufficient force being applied to the bars as I was standing and leaning on/over them, slightly changing my right hand's position as I reached for the gear lever caused the bars to snap around to the right. I then did a good imitation of Lance in the 2003 Tour when he caught his handlebar on a spectator's bag and then hit the ground hard. I landed on my left side hard, cursing. Scraped elbow was about it, though I almost tore the hip of my shorts on the pavement as I slid slightly - looks like a piece of sandpaper was used on it. At least there were no witnesses. That would have been embarassing... :) First spill of the year. Bike is OK too.

Carpe Diem
