Fell Off My Bike
There is my bike (click to enlarge) as you can see it has a Trek Bruiser frame, marzocchi bomber front forks (i dunno what model tho, so sorry to anybody who really wanted to know), rear hope hydraulic disc brakes etc, I did fall off a while back but it wasn't really that bad, but i knackered my back brake lever, so earlier on today i bodged it up with 2 elastic bands, works a treat..
Anyway now on to the more interesting part of today. Yes I fell off my bike, the joy, I actually consider my self lucky that I didn't smash all my teeth out of my face, but heres how it happened;
I was on my way back home from a small bike ride with my brother, and I was being a bit silly, and then we were goin down a very rocky road, which just so happened to be part of a stream, so it was slippy, and because it has been raining a lot recently that didn't really help, also, for some reason the road was nice and muddy, and I was prob goin summat like 15mph. so if you haven't gathered I was going down a rocky, muddy, wet and slippy road, and silly me decided to bunny-hop a stone in the middle of the road, little to my surprise, my wheel found a nice large rock to land on, I tried to avoid it, I failed, my wheel spun perpendicular to the way I was traveling, then I flew straight over my handle bars, n smashed my face on the rocky dirty floor. Nice ey?
So I shouted my bro, he came back up to me and sed "owch", then I set off home with blood streaming from my face, and poured what water we had left on my face n cuts. It had stopped bleeding a bit by the time we were back home, but you may be able to imagine what looked like.
Anyway the best bit; here is what I look like now...
Ha, and obviously falling like that makes your skin colour go a bit white, whereas usually im a well groomed well tanned, male :p . lol!
So get this, i get home n my dad says "don't go in the house like that, you'll get mud everywhere" so he then hands me the bucket n sponge he washes the car with, n makes me clean out myself in the back garden, charmin'.
Well sorry if i have waffled on a bit, but just thought id share this with you as I aint updated for a while. And THAT folks is what (can) happen when you fall off your bike! (please comment)
UPDATE!"You didn't fall off your bike, the bike fell from underneath you!" - quote Matty Garlick,
now the day after i still have scars, what a bummer, this is me being sad, with my scars even though i tried me best to not have them, ah well.. :(
As you can see my chin took most of the impact of the fall, thank god for that, the power of my almighty chin shines again!
