So I took my first spill on my bike riding into work this morning.
I was right at the end of my 12 mile ride: I had gotten all the way to campus, and was crossing the street. I got to the curb and tried to pop my front tire onto it... and missed. I don't know whether I was tired from the ride, or whether I just timed it badly, but I went right over the handlebars.
So I hit the concrete on my elbow and rolled, then my bike landed atop me. Oof.
My elbow and my ego took the brunt of the damage: I'm having trouble bending my left arm right now, but nothing's broken (I think)---it's just a little stiff. My helmet's a little dinged up, but I don't recall hitting my head... I'm hoping that's not a symptom.
I had to pick up my water bottle and bike light, and I decided to walk the rest of the way... all 100m or so to this building.
Mother Earth better be @#$%# grateful.
