First ride last night being clipped in. Yep- I fell. I practiced before I went out, no problem getting in and out. Started out on a 12.5 mile route,heading to my in-laws for dinner. About 1/2 way thru, I decided to cut it short (it was brutally hot and ALL hills). So that basically meant going thru town which I really didn't want to do because of traffic. All was going well. Came to a stop sign during the last mile, thought I could cruise thru it until a truck pulled out of his driveway, so had to stop but of course couldn't get unclipped fast enough and just fell over. Bruised and scrapped but no real damage to me or the bike. Learned that I need to take tools (the right ones) with me as my bike seat was tweeked and had to finish the ride that way. Luckily it was less than a mile to my in laws.
So I guess I need to figure out how to unclip much quicker. I suppose this will come in time. I took all of the advise everyone in this group gave me, so I felt fully prepared and knew what to expect. No surprises there~ Thanks!
Glad to have that out of the way! Best part was jumping fully clothed into pool when I got there.
