Bike Stupidity

1) Yesterday was the last Velo Bella training session. I rushed home from work, got dressed, made a sandwich, got all of my stuff in the car, went to grab my bike, and oh no. No pedals. My pedals are on my track bike. Crap crap crap. I went upstairs, frantically ripping through everything that might have a wrench in it, and nothing. Errr.

Note: Later, after missing the ride, I found out that the wrench was in some super secret pocket of one of Tim's bags. Who knew.

2) Today I was on the track for the second time. This means that it was also my second time on a fixed gear. I have no problems mounting, riding, slowing, but it's the dismounting I have troubles with. I went around the infield once and my seat was a tad bit too high. Gilby helped me lower it and I went around one more time to make sure it was right. I slowed down, unclipped, and bam. Fell over on the other side right on my knee. Ouch. Skinned it up pretty good. Skinned up my ego even more. I tried to take a picture, but I accidentally made a video and I can't figure out how to get anything from my phone to the computer yet, so you'll have to wait.

One of these days I'll figure it out.

Your poor knees have sure been taking a beating this year . . .

Hope all goes swimmingly from here out.

I was so glad you could make it yesterday. Hope your knee (and the ego) is feeling okay today!
