It was Thursday evening, about an hour after a storm had rolled through. The ground was still very wet, but I decided to go for a ride. I took it slow at first, but in time, I was eager for more speed. I was dodging parked cars left and right. Finally, I came to the top of my driveway. I rocketed around the corner. Hell, I must have been doin' 5, maybe even 6mph! About halfway through the turn I hit a slick spot, and the back wheel skidded out in front of me. I slid along the ground with my bike for nearly 3 feet!
I myself sustained only minimal damage. However, the damage to the bike adds up to a whopping $6.59 for a new pedal.
It sucks not being old enough to ride.
