Well, I feel like a dork. Why? I took my first spill today. I was riding back from picking up my lunch when I heard a big truck breathing down my neck, so I got a little closer to the gutter so he can pass me… Well, he didn’t so I assumed that he was going to turn onto the next driveway, as I accelerated, I got too close to the driveway, and the ‘lip of death’ got me….

Yeah, you know, the little lip between the street and the driveway… I washed out, landed on my side and scraped my elbow.

Fortunately for me, my Banjo Brothers Panniers took the brunt of the fall. I’m OK, the bike’s OK but my ego is a little bruised…
