My Bike is a little Redder today

First crash!

Although, unfortunately, it's not paint or stickers it's blood. My blood.

I was cycling along the canal (see map), which was very congested and halfway up the little bridge I had to stop, I couldn't get my foot out of the pedal strap quickly enough and I toppled into a cyclist coming the other way and smashed my nose into his shoulder.

Everyone around was very helpful and concerned.

I think my pride is the worst casualty though.

Day 5 100km check
So in 4 days of riding I've now gone over the 100km mark. Well 113km to be precise (that's 70.4 miles in real money), but 70 doesn't sound as good as 100.
