This weekend while riding with my faster friends, the guy in front of me tapped tires with the guy in front of him causing him to go down in front of me. I didn't have time to take evasive maneuvers, since we were cruising about 25 mph. His leg came out of his pedals as he was going down and appeared in front of my front of my wheel. It sent me flying over my bike, and I landed about 15 to 20 feet away. After we checked everyone out, and I straigtened my bike out, I looked at my computer and I was at mile 6.66. Weird, huh? My friend broke his wrist and had to be rushed to the hospital.
It was a sign...merckx56

Today, my buddy, Chip and I were riding the local trails on the 'cross bikes. We stopped to see if we could drop in by the river, but there was no way, so we went around. All in all, in took about thirty extra seconds. Once we hit the trail, we heard a huge crash. (Insert if a tree falls in the woods joke here!) We continued on, and after about THIRTY seconds on the trail, there laid half of a tree! It just spilt down the middle and landed squarely across the trail. I said it was a sign and went home!
It easily would have crushed both of us!
