Thought I would test out my new cycling shorts and pedals today and did really well dodging idiotic drivers who seem out to get me or need me to change their radio stations they go that close, mad dogs and owners with 12m death leads and pot holes that people could go caving down...
However I stopped at the lights and proceeded to topple sideways AS I forgot I was attached to my pedals (first time I have ever worn clets and been connected) and didn't know how to remove them - so I fell sideways and crashed through a roadworks barrier (MUPPET) - gouged out 4 lumps of my leg and had to cycle home with blood dripping down - sore.
I really hope this was a lesson learnt - disconnect shoes before trying to put foot on floor!
