Last week I started the biking season. I’ve been riding a Chase since August last year. Nice bike.. it’s on the pictures below..
Anyway, after a 15 minute cruise through the city I arrived at one of Berlin’s bigger parks. I’m basically a street and trial driver, not very much into anything really dangerous. God only knows why on my first day of this year’s biking season I decided to take a few shortcuts down a hill in that park.
I know most of these routes and I know what to expect at the end of them.. But somehow I got confused.. :)
Eveything looked OK from above:
Unfortunately I realized only after the ‘drop’ that this is how the end of the shortcuts looks:
I’m not sure which of these two shortcuts I took, I’m just happy that I landed OK and merely got a nasty wound at my left leg from the pedals.. because I slipped from the pedals after the ‘touch down’..
Boy was I lucky.. :)
Good start into the season!
