    Made it up 41st St this morning, but a big sheet of ice on the W&OD by Virginia Lane took me out. Definitely taking the road on the way back.

    Put me down for one. Found the only patch of black ice on my commute. Scratched up my wedding ring, which cut my hand, and felt a couple ribs pop uncomfortably. The bike is fine though, other than a couple scratches on the shifter and pedal.

    I'm assuming the crash in which I was riding the escalator, not my bike, doesn't count--even though my bike ran into me and threw me headfirst down the escalator.

    For those of you watching at home, this is why they say not to take your bike on the escalator.

    I successfully bribed W&W tonight with sushi treats to win this prize without actually having to fall this year.

    Funny. She took a bribe from me, too.

    +1 for me, too many entries here for my taste. Don't think I've been keeping my chain tight enough, and endoed on Wilson as a result when it jumped off and locked up my rear wheel. RIP (literally) my pants and gloves.

    What did you bribe her with? Mine was free snuggles. I'm pretty sure my bribe is going to win.

    I only had one crash this 2018 Freezing Saddles season, but it was a significant one. On MLK's Birthday (Monday Jan. 15th) I was off to meet folks in my group (Sleet 16) to get some social miles in. It was around 25 deg. F outside and dry when I approached the intersection of Wilson Blvd. and N. Jefferson Street. There was water running in the gutter pan of Wilson Blvd., and some ice build-up after that (in the intersection). Buy the time a made the decision to slow down and avoid the ice build-up, my wheels started to come out from under me, and I hit the asphalt hard. It turned out that the approach to the intersection was glazed with black ice from turning cars. I was able to unclip from the bike, and sit up, but I could not stand, so I sat in an icy puddle until I could squooch to the curb for a seat. In the mean time, several people had stopped to lend a hand, and an ambulance was called. I got an ambulance ride to Virginia Hospital Center where it was determined that I had a quadriceps contusion. Biking became very limited because I could not bend my right knee past 90 deg. In the weeks that have followed, I have received a determination that I have a quadriceps tendon partial tear, so biking has been limited to shorter slower rides. Little by little, I am working my way back to a level that I can restart my daily commute to Capitol Hill.
