I fell down and went boom, but it all worked out...



I rode the Square 2 Square today! It was a little different than it would have been had it gone on as planned, but it was still pretty fun. About 20 miles in, I was adjusting my helmet and hit the edge of the trail weird and wrecked my bike. I mostly have a bruised ego, along with a skinned chin and knee, but my bike will need repairs. My bike was safe to ride, though, so I went ahead and rode the additional 10 miles I needed to finish. If my bike hadn't been safe to ride, I would have gotten a bike share bike and ridden that because I was FINISHING THE DANG RIDE. Haha! 

I'm pretty proud of myself. (Yes, I wore a cute dress to ride in because I'm femme af and that's how I roll. LOL) IMG_1790.thumb.JPG.893d821883c4add3bfccb38120419bc0.JPGIMG_3502.thumb.JPG.fd385a1f1ac8f3543ac8ff8b4a79a2a4.JPG

Owie! For the pride and the skin and the bike :( 

But, yay you! You did a big ride!! I love your biking outfit - we don't all need to dress like superheroes to do every single bit of exercise, now, do we.

Thanks, all! My chin looks TERRIBLE today. It's all purple and scabby. But I'm wearing it like a badge of honor. :)

My bike will definitely need to be checked out, but it seems safe enough to ride, so I'm going to be back on it tomorrow to go to work! Hopefully I can scrape the money together to get it into the bike shop to get looked at soon.
