The Big Spill

What a beautiful day for a bike ride, I said to myself, and I agreed. So I got my iPod so I could listen to my tunes, put on my helmet, grabbed my cell phone (just in case) and off I went…

I was riding along listening to something really great, but I can’t remember what now, because about a mile and a half into my ride, I had to swerve to avoid running over a big piece of concrete in the road. However, I over shot my swerving abilities and ended up flat-out on the ground with my bike on top of me…Not a pretty sight my dear friends, not a pretty sight at all!

Thankfully, when I swerved, and fell off my bike, I landed on the inside of my neighborhood CVS Pharmacy parking lot. If I fell to the other side, I would have landed right in the middle of oncoming traffic…and I may not be here to share this bike riding blog post with you…:)

As embarrassing as it was, after the initial shock of realizing I actually fell off my bike, and taking inventory of myself to make sure nothing was broken… just a cut…


and some road rash…


I just picked myself up, brushed myself off, got right back on my bike and continued on my way…:) Really, there is nothing else you can do, except laugh all the way home thinking I really earned these Weight Watcher Points the HARD way today!

Stay Tuned!

    OMG. Aren’t those moments so scary!!! I can remember doing the exact same thing. I would have fallen into traffic on Scottsdale Road but went the opposite way instead thank God! So glad you are “ok!” Now, I’m not sure, but I’m assuming that you had your ear buds in since you mentioned your ipod. Do NOT ride your bike with those in. Do you hear me missy!!!!????!!!! That is a no – no. LOVE u!!!
