November sucks: Slippery when wet

Ever wondered what the insides of a Reelight look like?

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen the sun. It’s been even longer since I’ve taken a ride in the sun. Today was sunny, after a refreshing rain shower. I learned that there’s one thing more slippery than wet wood. Carbon soles on wet wood.

That would be the force of gravity.

The annoying thing is that I was carrying my bike, and landed on it. The sad thing? While I went to pick up my camera to photograph the broken Reelight, still wearing my carbon soles, I fell again.

Steel is real, but it's not adamantium.

All and all, I didn’t go for a ride. Mostly due to bent wheels, a dent in my Surly frame and probably other broken parts as well.
