Yes, as some of you may have known, I had a minor bike accident on Saturday morning. And it wasn't even 2km into my ride.
As I was cycling along Hackett Drive, near UWA, sticking to my bike lane. A car from the opposite direction turned in, cutting in front of me. I braked, but it was too late. My front wheel grazed the sides of the car... bike and myself fell to the ground.
The damage? Well, minimal... luckily.
A few scratches on the fork and front part of the frame. And some minor lacerations on my knuckles, elbows and tailbone. I shudder to think what might have happened if I was cycling a few seconds quicker.
And the idiot driver drove off! What a coward!
So yeah, don't worry. I wasn't referring to my bike or any bones in my body with the title post.
But I was referring to my training this week. I did continue cycling after that, but soon I had a flat tyre. Not sure whether it was due to the collision. And my spare tube wasn't working too well, so I had to cut my ride short.
On the plus side, I did another 120km bike ride on Sunday morning, which soon became a torture in the 38 degrees heat! But I was glad I conquered it, despite taking several breaks under the trees. Completed the distance in 4 hours 10 minutes, 28.6kph average - another training PB :)
Now, instead of having a rest day tomorrow, I'm doing my long run. All because of the idiot driver... BLUEK!
