Rad wipe out!


The best spill of my life happened to me on the way to work this morning. I went through Manito Park on the Rawland. I was being all fast and dorky. Turns out watery grass is pretty slick.

Check out that skid! The fat part is where I slid on my side through the watery-mud. Just ahead of the fat skid you can see where my wheels started to slide. Dude! All up, it looks like I slid about 25 feet or so. Rad.

No injuries. No broken bike bits. I wish I could say the same for the turf at Manito Park. Sorry 'bout that.


Lot of mud on my pants. Thankfully, Gnat and Steph dropped off some pants at the P2P shop the night previous, so I didn't sit in mud all day. What luck!

I've seen plane crashes that left less of a mark.
