Oh I'm not fully fit either Barry but never mind that.
Took a fall with my bike today going to work. I have to cross a walking bridge and it's blocked for cars with barriers at either end. You have a small gap at either side which is at 90 degree angle. It also goes slightly down hill and is really gravelly. So far I've been dismounting but after seeing another cyclist cycling through the gap yesterday, I decided to give it a go. At the last minute, I decided I didn't want to do it after all, got left stationary with feet in clipless pedals and timbeeer! Got my hands on the bridge rail so only knocked my knees and elbow on the floor. Must of been a sight! I think I'll keep on dismounting until I feel bit more confident. On a mountain bike I wouldn't've thought twice...
Lovely yoga session tonight as well. Really stretches me out and feel so good afterwards.
Have to say, I now look forward to the weekend and a break from cycling!
