Just started a training ride and was cruising along at 21 mph when my front tire rubbed against the rear tire of someone else and boom….I went shoulder first into the pavement! OUCH! #1 rule of outdoor riding in a group? Never overlap and always protect your front tire! I got lucky and only got road rash, bruised ribs and a separated AC. Bike is ok! May need surgery to repair but it would be a minor, out-patient variety but will know more Monday or Tuesday followed by anywhere between 4-8 weeks recovery. Dang it….I almost didn’t go but decided last minute to go with some friends. Oh well! Feeling a lot better today!
