Anyways, I'm impressed by how difficult it is to
wrack one's self by riding a bicycle. Sure, there
are stoopid, Eval Knieval things to do, but just
bringing one's self to attempt those stoopid things
is difficult.

Unless it involves homemade ramps made of springy
1/4" plywood and plastic 5-gallon buckets liberated
from a construction site. The officious, Thou-Shalt-Not
nannies can legislatively foist all kinds of safety
equipment upon us, but they can't stop us from occasionally
busting our wrists & clavicles in the pursuit of a li'l fun.

Wheeee! Ouch!

My last near-faceplant was while test-riding a road bike
I'd built up out of 3 discarded bikes. Being used to flat
handlebars, I accidentally got my floppy shirt sleeve
caught up in the drop bar-mounted front brake lever.
One pedal stroke, and down I went. Next thing I knew,
I was doing impromptu push-ups in the back lane.
Boy, the ground sure comes up fast at ya.


cheers,
Tom
