I fell off my bike yesterday morning at about 7.10am. It was a cold morning and I mashed up my right knee. I was going to take a photo and post it but felt your sensibilities would not welcome a gooy mass on the front page.
What I learnt:
Don’t always rush; perceived lateness ends up being actual lateness, it would have been quicker to have taken it easier and got there in one piece.
Check the gear before you put pressure on it.
Think before you act
Pause before you spring into anything
Look after yourself: you have one body and one brain and they are tired enough already
Don’t blame anyone but yourself
