Well, I INTENDED to go for a ride around the local track and roads.

But I crashed my bike. I got all of 20 meters befrore losing control on a hill and crashing into the gutter :cry: .

I've skun my elbow really badly and narrowly avoided getting a stick in the eye - it embedded just below my eye, thanks to my sunglasses which are now broken. I have a bruse on my thigh too. Luckily for me, no broken bones, but my nose is really sore as I face-planted into the dirt.

The bike has had the handlebars twisted around and the gears have jumped off. One pedal has had the grip ripped off it on the gutter.

I don't think I'll be riding to work tomorrow, and I don't think I'll be doing any exercise today as I'm still in a bit of shock. Luckily my neighbors were home and helped me clean my arm which I couldn't do in the shower.

Oh Tegan, what a horrible experience you've just gone through.
I hope your facial injury isn't too bad and that all your wounds heal quickly.

Thanks guys.

My face isn't too bad, just a few scratches that should heal fine so long as they don't get infected, and my nose it sore, but not broken or anything. My arm is the worst, very stingy. I went to A&E just to have it checked as I couldn't see it, being on the back of my elbow and all. They gave it a good disinfect and gave me a tetanus booster just in case. But it should all heal in a week or so barring infection.

I bought myself a new pair of sunnies too after realising that they very likely saved my sight by redirecting the twig away from my eye proper

The bloke came home and made all ok with the bike and I went out and rode around the driveway for a bit, then down the road and back. No falling off this time.
