Second time I've crashed on my own in a month. This slippery miserable shitty weather is not just annoying, now, it's dangerous! :)
Of course, it was after the work xmas party and I was tanked but I'd ridden from the city to Ealing without issue. :) It was only when I went to suss out the chip shop and hit a very slippery patch of tarmac (I checked it out last night and it was greasy - actually difficult to stand on) that I hit the deck. I was on the Rubble and managed to break off the rear light, shred the rear derailler cable and cut holes in my brand new gloves. WAC.
Again, for some unknown reason, my left shoulder is worse, even though I hit my right hand side. I don't get it. I'm over this cycling bollocks. I'm off to buy a BMW off a credit crunched banker.
In more positive news, my new commuter is almost ready to roll.. it's an '07 Condor Pista + some bits of forum members..
Here's an interesting article about a wind tunnel test at Monash (nicked from Carl's Blog
