cranky turtle

the dreaded streetcar tracks were my downfall (haha). last week i wiped out over the streetcard tracks on dundas st. riding to meet friends for dinner.

unfortunately due to watermain upgrade construction, cyclists need to merge over streetcar tracks into the left lane between shaw st. and dovercourt rd.

even after my close call on spadina and even after being told by the bicycle thief to always cross the tracks as close to 90 degrees as possible, in my rush to get to dinner, hopping back over to the right lane, i got a bit too cocky/lazy and crossed probably almost parallel to the tracks. big mistake.

i totally wiped out and slid onto construction gravel, hit both knees (skinned one) and banged up my left wrist. luckily for me, there weren't any cars right behind me. two concerned ladies rushed over to help me up.

today was the first day since my wipe out to ride my bike and now i get a bit panicky when crossing street car tracks. boooooo. i need to gain my confidence again by riding more, but with snow in the forecast it looks like i'll be putting my bike away for the winter.

oh well. i'll keep myself occupied with bike blogs.

i want to start a cupcake ride in toronto, perhaps in the spring!
