After a very long winter, I took to biking today. The bike had been sitting out through the record snow fall and was little creaky. When I stopped to put air, the tire blew. I brought it to Yellow Jersey to fix the tire, it wasn't expensive at all, which I feared it might. On the return, back after barely making through little uphill, I lost the balance and fell hard on the road. I don't recall ever falling from the bike, in very very long time. Perhaps, not since I really learnt riding a bike. I bruised myself on the knee and hand. Fortunately, there weren't any vehicle on the road. I guess its fine to fall once in a while, teaches you how to pick up and move on. Happy Spring!
