I’d pretty much convinced myself that the best time to crash on a bike is in the winter time…
Reason #1 — you don’t get road rash.
Reason #2 — there’s usually lots of nice soft snow to land in.
Reason #3 — there’s rarely anyone else around to observe the crash.
However, my convictions weakened slightly today, when I performed a spectacular “dance of the glare ice” crash.
Result #1 — I did get road rash, right through two layers of bike tights.
Result #2 — there was no snow, just the bare (and rough) pathway right after the ice.
Result #3 — there were several people around to witness my crash.
How many months till spring? 🙂
