|I was taking a leisurely ride across campus during rush hour today - heading to the vodeostore to return some videos.
Making a left onto a majorly crowded street with lunch pedestrians everywhere I felt a tug on my right leg.
Next thing I heard was a rrrrrrrrip - all while dodging cars and pedestrians scutting across the street.
I am attaching a pic of my bike(it is now green) and of the damage.
Could of been
worse so i am thankful that only my drawers were sacrificed.

|i often ride in sandles too. When I'm 'serious', i use the bikeshoes with laces covered by velcro.
When I ride in the chucks or the Doc Martins, though, I keep re-knotting (quadruple knot? Quintuple knot?) until I'm comfortable the loops are short enough. Always been a fear of mine.
