Nice sunny day so I went for a ride even though the temp was 16 and strong winds. 15 minutes into the ride I hit a black ice patch on a turn and slid down.

It hurt but I got up and kept going and finished a 1 1/2 hour ride. I bruised my elbow and hip and also got road rash both places even though my clothing did not tear there. This is the second time I got road rash through layered clothing without it tearing. What's up with that? I did put a small hole in the the sleave of my favorite Kodiak Jacket. Shet!

only rollers for 15-20min. Ride mtb, fat tires grab much better, you going slower, and trees shield you from cold wind.
