If you have ever had a bad bike crash then this is might be familiar to you. 4 weeks ago I suffered a bad crash while commuting to work. I hurt my knee and my hip.
The crash itself was a comically slow one. I was just riding to work and because of some road works I had to take a different route than usual. That detour led me to a tunnel under the main road that I normally cross over. What I wasn’t aware of riding down to the tunnel, was that there was about 4 cm. Of ice covering the whole bottom of that tunnel. I did not notice it in time, and tried to ride all the way through, coming up just short of the exit. The front wheel slipped under me and came down with a bang on my side.
