First big fall
I started riding seriously this summer. So far I have ridden about 400 miles. The first 200 were on a mountain then I purchased my first road bike. Yesterday I took my first fall. I was turning into a vacant parking lot and hit a patch of loose grave. I went down fast and hard; can't believe how fast it all happened. My bike suffered scratches to the derailer, pedal, and brake/shifter lever. For me; road rash on my calf, hip, and shoulder. A little sore this today but all in all things are fine. I am very thankful for my helmet. It protected my head from a good bashing against the pavement.
