Be careful out there!

Post by pdq67 » Thu Oct 11, 2018 5:29 pm

Recently, I was riding around on my new bicycle and a frog-strangler came up out of nowhere!

I said to heck with this and started to turn around to go back home, ended up hitting a sloped curb at a driveway entrance and went down, busting above my right eye with an inch gash! My left hand is all puffed up and I generally hurt all over!

All the while, bleeding in the middle of the street getting soaked to the bone!!

Luckily, a neighbor passed by and stopped, loaded my bike and me in his new SUV and took me about 4 blocks back home!!

I guess it could have killed me!! So I'm OK!!

Shower didn't last probably 20 minutes!!

I probably should tell people that you should see the other guy!! He, He!! But I won't...

Ouch :( Glad you didn't do any real serious damage. Hope the bike is ok too. I have been more worried lately about the idiot drivers. Now that it gets dark way too early I guess I am going to have to be limited to weekends. I actually went for a walk the night before last instead of riding.

Raining like a cow pissing on a flat rock!

And on another note, good thing he has a hard head. If he had of hit his shin like that, it would have REALLY hurt!!

OH, and if you were doing this for exercise, then a good brisk 30 minute WALK will work much better and there's no bike to fall off of!!
