People always use the phrase “Keep the Rubber Side Down” … meaning to stay upright. Well … that’s easier said than done for me lately.
Last year, I’m riding down this road, not looking up, and not knowing I’m going faster than the tandem in front of me. Boom … cracked ribs.
Then, March of this year, on my commute, I hit something and I go down … again cracked ribs.
Last week, the road was wet, slick … and I’m just about home … in fact, I’m in the parking lot at home … make a left turn, and the wheel slides from under me, and I go down again. Thankfully, no cracked ribs, but a sore wrist.
Maybe I need some armor on my rides?
