I took a header on my bike today. Went over the handlebars and landed palms down, in push-up position, just centimeters from crashing my face into the hard sidewalk. The basket caught my middle. Thorns in the chest area, on the shirt. One long two-inch scrape on my left arm, one tiny on my right knuckle. A man, and Ecuatoriano came over and lifted the bike off of me, and another murmured consolations. So sweet. My basket is seriously dented on all sides, one from where it hit the cement, the other from where I landed on it! I’m so grateful I had that basket to take the damage off of me!
Yeah. I wanted to cry from the jarring but couldn’t see and ride, so I blew my chance for a good cry, dang it.
