Maybe I blogged too soon about the weather. Although generally I don’t believe in fate and superstition, perhaps this once I have overstepped a mark (what that mark is I’m not entirely sure with this strange belief system!). After the start of the slow thaw I thought I would be safe on the bike. I know how to handle winter roads on 2 wheels… or so I thought. I should take a long hard look at myself in future and a) trust my first instincts and b) not spout on about the winter wonderland being so benign. This morning folks I fell off my bike in spectacular style less than 2 miles from home. I broke only my pride but have the scrapes and bruises to show for it, including the nice shiner seen below. At least it will start the conversations tomorrow.
