I've been lurking here for a few months and have posted a few things w/o introducing myself (I know, how rude!) Anyway, I've been pretty active since meeting my DH two years ago mostly just working out in the gym. But last summer I started cycling and running. I'm pretty much addicted!
Anyway, I just got clipless pedals (the kind where your shoe actually is attached to the pedal) and started riding my husband's old Cyclocross bike. Last night I was riding and a car stopped at an intersection to let me go then the car went anyway!! I couldn't get unclipped and tipped right over. (If you've never seen an almost 30 year old woman fall off a bike I'm sure it's pure entertainment) BUT I hit my helmet on the curb and it BOUNCED! My helmet is scraped up pretty bad but THANK GOD it's not my head! All day I've been a walking PSA for EVERYONE wearing a helmet while biking!
Thanks for all your inspiration and knowledge on the H & F board! And you're welcome for the PSA and the laugh!
