How many of you have fallen off your bike? I can see many hands and nodding heads.
Why do you fall from your bike? Many reason. Crash? More nodding heads I see. Slippery roads and loose sand on switchbacks? Some nodding heads. Trying to avoid cars that do not signal when turning? Hmm. Accidentally clipped the wheels in front? Yes.
At the traffic light? Loses balance while perfecting the track stand? Still clipped in? I saw a few of those, right Lei?
I got one last week. Equipment trouble as my cleat refused to dislodge from my pedal. Loses my balance while stopping. So I fall with the bike. Still clipped in. Like nangka busuk. Ceh. Akhirnya I join THE group (kan Lei kan?).
This is the result. A few deep gash on my right foot courtesy of the chainring and a bruised left knee. Padan muka aku.
