I rode my bike this morning all bah mahself! I know what you're thinking---big deal. But it's the first time in years that I've ridden alone because of the time I fell and broke my wrist.
I always ride with my husband so that he can call 911 when I fall. He is in SC today, so I rode with my trusty "Help I've fallen and I can't get up watch," and the phone it calls 911 from. So in that regard, I was prepared and ready to go.
However at about the 3/4 point of my ride, I had to stop and walk the bike over some curbs between neighborhoods, and I discovered that my kickstand was down. Ooops.
It's a good thing I hadn't needed to make any sharp left turns, although, when I told my husband what I had done, he said that the kickstand would have gone up if it had hit anything. I'm just glad I didn't have to learn that firsthand.
In other totally unrelated news, I am making this wrap out of exactly this yarn in exactly this color.
