Mini Blog Post: Crash
|Before crashing. Doesn't look that wet outside.|
I have had the Metrofiets for a little bit and have managed to crash in the following ways:
|NEVER EVER AGAIN!|
|2 minutes before the crash|
2. I crashed hard and this time very hard. We had a series of days where it didn't rain and so when it rains again the road become slick. With complete confidence I thought I could grab something with one hand and mange the bike at the same. WRONG. Don't do that. Then I did the fatal mistake of braking. My brakes are good. So, I started skidding left and going down at the same time. AWWWWW!! OW!
While I was falling I was thinking, my tights are falling, how embarrassing. Luckily, I had the poncho on so nobody saw this disaster. AWWWW! I kinda just stayed on the ground and wondered if my legs worked. A guy walking kinda stared and when he realized I wasn't moving he said, "are you ok" but kept walking. I am not sure how to feel about that. The time I saw a drunk lady stumble on Broadway and fall I helped pick her up. So, I got up moved the bike over to the side. A woman saw this from her house and came out. I was close to 20/20 Cycles so I limped over. I was not sure to cry, the adreline still pumping.
Daniel came out, checked my bike and gave me a band-aid. Seriously, those guys are nice. 20/20 Cycle, I love you!
I biked home with all my junk and here I am, on the couch embarrassed. I don't think my knee is broken but it's swollen. My tights are intact and it's really bizarre how I was so worried about the condition of my tights.
|I know, I biked home with a full load. I don't think I'm broken.|
DAMN!! Metrofiets, you make one bomb proof bike. DAMN, Alex, you put components on my bike that work well. Respect!
