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 12 Puncture Day
Oh no, what do I do? I haven't had a puncture since 1982, I have no idea how to deal with this, do I throw the bike away and get a new one?
