On Thursday, I was excited about going on a bike ride. I went and bought a helmet, put air in my bike's tires, set off for a 6- to 10-mile bike ride.... and promptly crashed about a half-mile into the ride.
That's the short story.
Here's the pictorial version.
I'd been riding for two minutes, had traveled a whopping .37 miles and was traveling at 14 miles an hour. And of course, I felt happy.
I went into the turn and noticed water. I tried to slow down. But...
... it was too late.
I was thrown off my bike, smacked my head on the asphalt, crushed my knee under the bike, scraped my arms and thumped my chest.
According to micoach app then, I was thrown off my bike at about 14 miles per hour.
I'm okay. Getting better, both physically and mentally.
