I remember coming back from the Tulla one year. I was with a friend of mine riding along a bike track when we started to approach a Y intersection. I was in the lead, but I didn't know where I was going so my friend was giving directions from behind. He couldn't decide wether we had to turn left or right. By this time I was heading straight toward the middle of the split at 30kmh. Couldn't, or should I say, due to my lack of experience at the time, didn't turn either way. But I also didn't want to go straight on because there was about a 1-1/2 ft drop with bits of broken water pipe. I slammed on the brakes, lock the front, the bike stayed on the track, but I went straight over the hangers. Luckily I landed on my butt and only got a small graze on my knee. Onlookers came past, they gave me a 9.5/10 for style.
Hope ya get better soon Melissa. Just remember, everyone will come off the bike at some point. These experiences will make you a better cyclist.
