Well it started out to be a nice day. Rode my bike to work. Everything went well this morning. Didn't get cut off even once! (i'm a trucker). Then noon arrived. Air line bracket broke off back off my truck. I was tying them up with rubber tarp straps when one of them let go, took the hook off top of my head. There were several very descriptive words after that. Small cut and large bump and tenderness. Left work early cause I was a bit grumpy now. Then it happened. Road construction during night has pavement ground and stripped off. Was stopped at at a red light with 2 cages in front of me in right lane. Light went green and traffic began to move. First car got bout 1/4 way through intersection then decided to turn right. But there were pedestrians so they just stopped. 2nd car had to slam on brakes which in turn caused me to grab a handful of brake. Now here's where things went wrong. I also inadvertently hit the rear brake too, but too hard. Locked up rear wheel and slid sideways. Was just about stopped and thought was ok til wheel stopped sliding and over I went. Didn't get my foot down fast enough and went down! Luckily I was only doing about 20 k/mh. Guy in front of my helped pick up bike, asked if I was ok, then continued on his way. I got Really lucky the guy behind me stopped, but then drove around me. Got the bike off the road to check for damages. Cut on my hand, twisted ankle and back. The bike got really bad scrapes on exhaust, foot peg and mount, mirror and brake lever. I got away with "minor" damages but am still pissed. I know I'm lucky that it wasn't worse.
