Oh gosh, I was there a few times as a kid and an adult. Well done.

I was an adult, and it was awful.

Yikes! Had a bike tire shred my foot. Like horses these “creatures” can be unpredictable:0

It is amazing how big and bad they can be, especially if they have hand brakes that do not work because they are wrapped wrong.

I once had a pretty ugly tussle with with a bicycle, too (one broken bone and several cracked)- but it pales in comparison to what you went through! I really love the first line of this- the tire spinning in contrast to the rest of you.

I know what you mean, bicycle accidents can be pretty gory and gruesome things. ;(

Thank you. My foot broke in 5 places too, but it is so disgusting to add that I decided to leave it off.
